Dallas Children’s Theater, in collaboration with show producer Imagination Stage, will present a virtual screening of the filmed stage play 10 Seconds. The 45-minute screening will be followed by a talkback. Appropriate for ages 13 and up, the event is a part of the theaters’ continuing commitment to using the power of their medium to spark important conversations around tough topics.
In a world where deeply rooted biases and misperceptions easily take hold, life can often feel unnerving - things can change for better or worse in a blink of an eye. Ray and Jimi are Washington, DC high school students who are navigating their young adult worlds and what it means to be young black men in the city. Ray tells the story of a day, and the ten seconds inside that day, that they will never forget. We see not only their perspectives, but also those of the police they encounter. Through audience engagement and interactive moments, the play provides opportunities for reflection and discussion.
