Congo Square Theatre Company (Congo Square), one of the nation’s premier African American theatres, launches its 2021-2022 season with THE CLINIC, introducing the old-school serial radio drama genre to a new, streaming audience. Created, written, acted, and produced by Congo Square ensemble members, THE CLINIC will air in four clever, cliffhanging segments, available for streaming starting today, September 9, for one month only, through October 10, 2021. Tune in by visiting www.congosquaretheatre.org/audio-series; a donation of $10.00 is suggested.
As described by its co-writers (and Congo Square ensemble members) Monifa Days and Javon Johnson, THE CLINIC is “a nod to the old school soap opera-style dramas that follows the journey of Dr. Latisha Bradley who is changing the world with a life-altering discovery that was meant to help all but only helps some. Everyone wants in. Dr. Bradley not only has to deal with changing the future of medicine but betrayal and matters of the heart.”
Directed by Congo Square’s Daniel Bryant, the cast includes fellow ensemble members Aimee K. Bryant, Aaron Todd Douglas, Tracey N. Bonner, Will Sims II, with guest artist Jonathan Perkins.
