Hilton Als

Lives of the Performers

Pulitzer Prize-winning writer and theater critic for The New Yorker Hilton Als comes to Carolina Performing Arts to stage the work-in-progress of his debut play, Lives of the Performers—a provocative work that explores race, the self (and those forces that threaten to destroy it), and sisterhood. Directed by Peter Born and starring Helga Davis and Okwui Okpokwasili, with support from the Ford Foundation.

This performance is supported by Arts Everywhere and is a Carolina Performing Arts commission.

Tickets $37
