“Wrong River” by Josh Wilder
True Colors Theatre Company is proud to introduce a series of staged readings with themes that parallel those in our season productions. We will examine our world through the eyes of characters while creating intimate occasions to engage with patrons.
In advance of our production of Dominique Morisseau’s Skeleton Crew, we will produce a staged reading of Josh Wilder’s Wrong River. Join us as we explore how the decisions of governments and corporations can negatively affect the masses and create moments of crisis.
As the water crisis in Flint, Michigan begins to make national headlines, a young couple struggling to make ends meet scrambles to fight for a better future for their daughter–– even if it means losing everything they have.
The Flint Water Crisis sparked national outrage and a grassroots movement that encouraged people from across the globe to send bottles of clean drinking water to Flint’s residents. As we celebrate a season of Moments that make the Movement, we are excited to pair our production of Skeleton Crew with Wrong River, two plays that humanize our country’s recent struggles.
