Theatre Conspiracy at the Alliance for the Arts in Fort Myers will continue the theatre company’s “The Best Seat in Your House” virtual performance series June 11 with a special production of three brief, but powerful and timely one-act plays that explore themes including the impacts of systemic racism, racial profiling, implicit bias, police brutality, generational trauma, and equity.

The pieces chosen for the performance come amid ongoing protests and demonstrations in reaction to the recent deaths of people of color like George Floyd and Breonna Taylor at the hands of law enforcement.

We’ll talk with Theatre Conspiracy founding Artistic Director Bill Taylor, and actor and educator Sonya McCarter, who is also an instructor in the Alliance for the Arts’ CHANGE Program (Communities Harnessing the Arts to Nurture and Grow Equity.
