Event Details

Important: This event will be held at the Clinton Town Hall, located at 54 East Main Street.

Indaba and M.A.D. Content, Clinton Arts Council, Clinton Human Rights Committee, and Henry Carter Hull Library are pleased to help bring to our shoreline community the critically acclaimed one-act play written and directed by Award-Winning screenwriter, Steve Driffin, called Death by a Thousand Cuts: A Requiem for Black and Brown Men.

This compelling theatrical production, featuring professional actors, has sold-out venues in CT and off-Broadway in NYC since 2022. Allegorically told, Death by a Thousand Cuts: A Requiem for Black and Brown Men candidly unearths the raw experiences of melanated men. Drawing from the joy, pain, and the trauma of surviving in America, this is a requiem 400 years in the making.

The play will be performed on the Andrews Memorial Hall stage in Clinton, CT on Saturday, April 13, 2024 at 7 PM. The performance will be immediately followed by a talk-back, facilitated panel discussion where members of the audience can verbally process the emotion and other impacts of this powerful play.
