Please join us for An Evening of One-Acts on Saturday, July 29th at the Juvenile Justice Center in San Francisco!
Each One Reach One (EORO) conducts two week intensive Playwriting Workshops, pairing individual youth with professional theater artists to development of an original, one-act play. At the end of the two weeks professional actors perform the students' one-act plays before a live audience of family and special guests. We would love for you to join us for this very special evening!

When you’re a young girl of color caught in the stifling web of educational neglect, calcified courts, and an overwhelmed incarceration system, it’s easy to become a statistic. Pushed out of society, Aisha, Mercedes, and Dani fiercely fight to survive the “school and prison nexus," with their humanity, dignity, and individuality intact. Through the varied stories of these resilient girls, Black Butterflies explores how a broken system of schools, families, and courts can collude to trap girls of color.
This world premiere by award-winning and nationally-recognized playwright Darren Canady combines a cast of young actors from the A.C.T. Education & Community Program, Destiny Arts Center in Oakland, and the Young Conservatory.
Come listen to Harold Atkins, EORO's Program Manager, before the July 28th show as he shares inspiring insights into the juvenile justice system.

This Land Was Made:
Oakland, 1967. In Miss Trish's bar, Marvin Gaye, The Supremes and The Chambers Brothers play while local 20-somethings work, study, fight, fall in love and dream of a different world. On the streets, the Black Panther Party is organizing armed patrols against police brutality. John Frey, an on-duty officer, will soon be shot and killed. Huey Newton, the co-founder of the Black Panthers, will be charged and stand trial for his murder.
Tori Sampson's electric new drama brings the African American community of 1960s Oakland richly to life, offering a provocative look at the events that made Huey P. Newton an American household name.
EORO and Ubuntu Theater Project are thrilled to invite audiences to witness two of EORO's young playwrights' one-act plays, written while incarcerated, on July 21 at the Brooklyn Preserve (1433 12th Avenue, Oakland). Our young playwrights work one-on-one with theater artists to write an original play, which professional actors perform inside the facility before a live audience.
