You Down with GCT?
We welcome Good Company Theatre's co-founder Alicia Washington to the show this week to talk about how they curate the stories their company chooses to tell and her activism in the community for people of color. Plus, we do some Pinkies Up, Thumbs Down and Upcoming Events.
Listen to this week's episode here:
That's Some Good Company You're in There
After so many plugs for their shows and the great stories they tell, we had to get Good Company Theatre co-founder Alicia Washington in to chat about how they choose the stories they do. We chatted about their most recent show, "Ripped", which runs until Sunday, October 6th.
In addition to her passion for theater, Alicia told us about her work in the community, advocating for people of color and those whose voices are not always heard. Our conversation revolves around the recent shooting of a man by Ogden City Police that caused an uproar through the city.
Read more about the shooting in Jacob Scholl's piece from the Standard-Examiner:
