WTFM is gearing up for its July 13-15 Fourth Biennial Festival with fundraising theatrical productions, namely “Civil Rights/Civil Wrongs”, in January 2018. WTFM partners with the 35-year old Memphis Black Arts Alliance, Inc. in celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King’s birthday during the 50th year of the noted civil right leader’s demise. Both arts entities will also produce a special two-day one hour showing of one of the plays featured in “CR/CW” lineup on Friday, January 12 at 10:00am for students and Monday, January 15, at 12 noon for the public as a lunchtime theatre matinee.
“Civil Rights/Civil Wrongs” is the umbrella title for three One-Act fictional plays set in 1960s Memphis. The production features the original works of Ruby O’Gray and the late Dottie Royston, who toured as the comedy team of Royston & O’Gray in colleges, universities, theatres, schools, and the faith-based circuit during the early 80s and 90s. Although the struggle for civil rights was and is yet a painful subject, the ladies used comedy in their writing to broach the pain of the era. WTFM and MBAA’s collaboration not only will enlighten the historic period to young audiences, but will also stir recollections of many now seniors, who lived through that fateful era.
