This 45-minute performance highlights three disparate stories about the issues of unemployment, job discrimination, and reentry, written with the city of Wilmington in mind.

The three stories in #BlackJobsMatter include one male character in his mid-50s who has a criminal record and can’t seem to land a job; a Hispanic single mother who tries to safely guide her biracial daughter through high school, and a young drug dealer who is caught between worlds and searching for a job.

The play asks two basic questions: What are some of the challenges in underserved neighborhoods, and what are some of the challenges people are confronted with while they are unemployed?

Doors open at 6pm; show starts at 7pm.
