Dontrell, Who Kissed the Sea

Alumni Tyrone Phillips (BFA 2012) and Nathan Alan Davis (BFA 2005) kicked off our season with a splash. Our production of Dontrell, Who Kissed the Sea caught the attention of members from the Illinois Legislative Black Caucus, students, faculty, and community members. We offered two very well-attended talkbacks for patrons with Tyrone Phillips, Professor Peter Davis, and the cast of Dontrell, with more than 120 participants. This production spurred many interesting and lively conversations in our community and our region on the nature of the African American experience.
