A bold initiative to bring presentations of Mosaic productions and new play development program to students, artists, and the entire DC community

Mosaic on the Move

Thanks to our partnership with the DC Public Libraries, Mosaic will continue to bring free readings and programming related to our productions to DC public libraries in each of the 8 wards in Washington, DC. Listed below are the dates and location of the 8 library readings for this season.

Current Mosaic On The Move Shows:

#WOKE
By Dennis Williams
Part of Locally Grown Mosaic
The shocking death of a classmate at the hands of a Chicago police officer inspires three college students to push for progress at their university.  Their mission accomplishes more than merely “rocking the boat.” In #WOKE, students, faculty and administration confront the consequences of their actions (and inaction) as demands for change take the campus by storm. As truths are painfully revealed, can the movement survive the strife within its ranks?

FOR MY SILENT SISTERS
By Tara Meddaugh
Set in Cambodia, Romania, India and the United States, Meddaugh tells the story of four teenagers struggling to escape the dark underworld of child sex trafficking. Although living in different parts of the world, their lives become intertwined, with their support of each other binding this connection. This drama shines light on the atrocities that occur all over the world, and the hope and strength that allow children to survive.

NATHAN THE WISE
Adapted and directed by Michael Bloom
from the original by Gotthold Ephraim Lessing 
Part of Voices from a Changing Middle East
Written in 1779 by German playwright and dramaturg Gotthold Ephraim Lessing, Nathan the Wise iwas initially banned by the Church and later by the Nazis because of its urgent plea for tolerance. Set during the Third Crusade in Jerusalem, the play is a Shakespearean fable dramatizing how the gaps between three religions are bridged by an enlightened sultan, a Jewish merchant, and a mysterious Crusader. Following World War II, more than 30 German theatres reopened with productions of Nathan the Wise.

This powerful reflection follows Jessie, a humanitarian aid worker, helping to build an Education Center in the heart of a refugee camp in Rann, Nigeria.
