When a contemporary teen activist is on the brink of giving up the fight for justice, she finds inspiration in the story of the Little Rock Nine's battle for acceptance following the integration of Little Rock Central High School. Inspired by Dr. Melba Patillo Beals's searing memoir Warriors Don't Cry, this production is a catalyst for deeper discussion about social responsibility, civil discourse, social media, community engagement, and freedom.
Combining video projection, original music, spoken word, poetry, and prose, Warriors Don't Cry is a collaboration between The Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts and TheaterWorksUSA.
