The Kenosha Verbatim Project

Carthage College Theatre


— by Nora Carroll, Rayven Craft, Katherine Layendecker, Martin McClendon — 

In the summer of 2020, Jacob Blake was shot seven times in the back by a Kenosha police officer, touching off a chain of events that led to protests and major incidents in downtown Kenosha, including the killing of two protesters by teenager Kyle Rittenhouse. What has happened since then? How has Kenosha changed or not changed? How do people view their city since these incidents? How do we move ahead?

Carthage Theatre faculty and students are creating a piece of reality-based verbatim theatre that will examine how the people of our community have navigated the aftermath. Collecting material through interviews with community members as well as through researching trial transcripts, news articles, and other documents, the team will create a script using the actual words of the people who experienced it.

Tickets are free, there are no reservations, first come first served.

Saturday, May 20 @ 7:30PM
