About the Event

Elders Igniting: Many More Stories to Tell

Join us for a captivating theatrical event unveiling three one-act plays by three remarkable elder Black Atlanta playwrights, Carlton Molette (Move the Car) and Jamil el-Shair (Dying Well), and Janice Liddell (Senior Prom), directed by the inestimable, Byron C. Saunders. Their focus on the diverse experiences of African American seniors will tickle your funnybone, elicit a tear or two and have you recalling or imagining the excitement of journeying to "senior-hood."

This don't-miss event will take place on Saturday, May 18 (matinee and evening) and Sunday, May 19 (matinee), at the ArtsXchange in a vibrant atmosphere that celebrates the power of community.

The Saturday evening show also includes a special Elders Igniting reception in which attendees will have the opportunity to meet and talk one-on-one with the EI cast and production team. (reception attire--Casual Chic/African Attire )
