Who deserves a second chance? And who decides? SECOND CHANCE explores the concept of what it means to get a second chance in life. A woman has a criminal charge that has been following her around and she can’t seem to get rid of it no matter what she tries.
Performed by Stayci Bell, Charles Hilton, Caroline Mannheimer, Greg Tomiczak, Arminta Wilson, D. “Lurch” Yundt, Shannon Kemp, Tahiti Robinson, Sol Moran, Robert Blood, Calvin Wright, Annette Bryant, David Schnell, and Kamp Welch.
Created through weekly workshops (primarily by people experiencing homelessness) with playwright Carlyle Brown, choreographer Leah Nelson, and theater artists Bianca Pettis and Esther Ouray. Directed by Maren Ward.
SECOND CHANCE is the culmination of ACTivation: Changing the Conversation on Homelessness Downtown. ACTivation is zAmya’s year-long residency at the Hennepin County Library – Minneapolis Central on Nicollet Mall.
As with all zAmya productions, SECOND CHANCE will include humor, song, and spoken word.
SECOND CHANCE is created with support from Hennepin County Library, Minneapolis Downtown Improvement District, National Endowment for the Arts, and the Carolyn Foundation.
