Bennett College Presents "WHAT." by Kamilah Bush

October 19, 2016

Bennett College proudly presents WHAT. written by Kamilah Bush November 17-20, 2016 in Bennett College’s Little Theatre, located on 900 E. Washington St. Greensboro, NC. The play examines the personal side of the Black Lives Matter Movement and how it affects those left behind.

Price of admission is $5 for general admission and $2 for students. The performance Thursday through Saturday is at 7:30 pm, and 3 p.m. on Sunday.

WHAT. is written by Kamilah Bush who is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and an artistic apprentice at Triad Stage. She wrote this play after the death of Walter Scott in South Carolina. She had long been searching for a way to respond to the climate of injustice in this country. Walter Scott was stopped for a busted taillight, and was on his way somewhere – he was in the middle of something – and this thought inspired the telling of WHAT.

The Artistic Team comprises of Xavier Harris and Aaron Honesty from North Carolina A&T State University and Sekethia Ferguson, Cassidy Wise and Tyana Gladden from Bennett College. Beth Ritson, associate professor of theater and speech at Bennett College, will direct the play.
