About Our Speakers:
"…I was messaging a few women. One white girl responded, 'What makes you think that you can date a race that will never accept you and never want you?' "
"Clearly, all HE saw when he got on that bus was two women wearing Hijab (head scarf), and thought he could bully us... this is just plain sad, that things like this still happen."
"I have to check myself every time I make a snap judgment about someone I don't know. I do it way more often than I'd like to admit. Being conscious of it is the first step."
About The Seeing Place:
Now in its 5th Season, The Seeing Place is an actor-driven company: built by actors and managed by actors to be a base for actors who want to grow & hone their craft in a creative and supportive artistic home. We are forcefully committed to four elements of theatre-making: developing actors into thriving self-producers; honoring the craft of the actor’s process through rehearsal and into performance; bringing organic, “fully lived” storytelling to our community; and making theater accessible for all New Yorkers by keeping ticket prices low and affordable.
