Trip: Huntington Theatre @ Huntington: Common Ground Revisited
June 15 @ 1:00 pm
The bus departs at 1:00 pm for a trip to Huntington Theatre to see Common Ground Revisited. This riveting and intricately woven world premiere play brings Boston’s history to life in the 1960s and 70s, culminating in three families’ experiences in court-mandated busing. Diverse in both race and class, what can these families’ experiences tell us about our own time? Especially when Boston Public Schools are more segregated in 2021 than they were in 1974. Common Ground Revisited is inspired by Anthony Lukas’ landmark Pulitzer Prize winning book, which The New York Times praises as an “epic of American city life.” Developed with ArtsEmerson, this unique work comes from Obie Award winners Melia Bensussen and Kirsten Greenidge, reteaming for the first time since their acclaimed Huntington production of Luck of the Irish. Residents have to have purchased tickets on their own. Brookhaven is only providing transportation this season. Please remember to bring your proof of vaccination to enter the theater.
