TruArtSpeaks presents: Zhalarina Sanders’ ROSE GOLD

Saturday, February 18, 2017 at Pillsbury House Theatre
7pm | Tickets: $5
 
Through the mediums monologue, poetry, and rap, Rose Gold recounts the tragedy of Black motherhood and the glory of its daughters. This one-person play explores the relations of Black women in light of traumas old and new. Bobbie- Marilyn is a mother. It is her most painful reality. Consumed with guilt, she is determined to correct a mistake from her past, realizing that there may be no greater obstacle in the way of this than her own sister.
 
This special, one-night-only showing of Rose Gold is tied to TruArtSpeaks’ “Flip the Script!” youth writing and performance conference the following day, where Sanders will be working with MN teen poets.
