Act Up & Vote! Virtual Screening and Talkback

DRAFT Act Up & Vote Play Apr APC 2021

MONDAY, April 5 at 7 PM

Central Square Theater’s Youth Underground presents a screening of the original play Act Up & Vote! followed by a talkback with the performers. Act Up & Vote! is a work of investigative theater that explores voting and civic engagement.

Inspired by interviews with community members and experts, in-school residencies with area high-school students, and an in-depth workshop and development process with a professional playwright and director, the primary aim of this project is to create a dynamic, visually engaging, accessible play that will help new voters better understand how government works and why their votes matter.

Act Up & Vote! will resonate with adults, teens, and tweens. The screening will run for approximately 70 minutes, followed by a talkback where you’ll have a chance to hear from the performers and ask questions.

Sign up for the Act Up & Vote! Virtual Screening and Talkback here!
This event is in partnership with Brookline High School and generously sponsored by the Library Trustees.
