Company One Theatre Presents Better Future Series

BETTER FUTURE SERIES

C1’s Better Future Series is a multi-part digital gathering bringing together Boston’s artists, community leaders, and policymakers to understand the needs of our neighborhoods and reimagine the future of our city.

Reproductive Liberty and Body Justice for All a digital event featuring responsive short plays by  C1 Playlab Circuit Volt Lab Writers Cris Eli Blak, Pampi Das, Cayenne Douglass, and Rawchayl Sahadeo inspired by the National Network of Abortion Funds' list of demands

Reproductive Liberty and Body Justice for All 

Originally streamed Oct 13, 2022

Prompted by the recent dismantling of the protections laid out in Roe v Wade, four of Company One Theatre’s Volt Lab playwrights — all playwrights of color, all rising voices of the American theatre — have chosen one item from the National Network of Abortion Funds’ list of demands as a jumping off point for a short play and exploration of the actions we can take together for a more just society.

REMAKING AMERICA

Originally streamed Jan 26, 2021

Each new President pledges to “preserve, protect, and defend,” but which communities are at the front of that line? Company One’s Surge Lab playwrights — Inda Craig-Galván, Francisca Da Silveira, and Idris Goodwin — demand that we ALL move to the front by re-imagining our Better Future for housing, health, and education, along with local community leaders who have been doing the work.

THE GREAT DEMAND

Originally streamed Aug 18, 2020

Through a selection of short plays that uplift the often ignored voices in the quest for suffrage, and in conversation with organizers working to address disparities in voting access today, this digital event combines art and advocacy to celebrate how far we’ve come and look forward to the work that still remains to achieve true universal suffrage.
