Polar Bears, Black Boys & Prairie Fringed Orchids

presented by Pepperdine Theatre Department

Thursday, October 1–Saturday, October 3, 2020

directed by Nic Few

Pepperdine Theatre is proud to present L.A.-based playwright Vincent Terrell Durham's latest work. A liberal white couple host a cocktail party at their renovated Harlem brownstone. The guests include a Black Lives Matter activist, his white partner, a Harlem native named Shemeka, and the mother of a slain 12-year-old black boy. As the precarious party devolves into a tempest of assumptions and accusations, topics range from underweight polar bears, saving the planet, and gentrification, to racial identity and protecting the lives of black boys.

This play contains profanity; recommended for ages 13+.

Event Program

Registration is required. A viewing link will be sent to all registered attendees in advance of the performance.

There will be a virtual talk back with the cast and creative team as well as the playwright, Vincent Terrell Durham, immediately after the Saturday, Oct. 3 performance. A separate viewing link for the talk back will be sent to registrants for all performances.
