So Cal: “Bronzeville” performance

20 May 23 May

Robey Theatre Company, Inyo Council for the Arts, and Manzanar National Historic Site present “Bronzeville,” co-written by playwrights Tim Toyama and Aaron Woolfolk. Directed by Ben Guillory, the play explores the conflicting reactions members of a black family have when they discover a Japanese American hiding in their attic to avoid being sent to the Manzanar concentration camp. Each person wants to “do the right thing” but they have differing ideas of what that means. Student matinees Friday and Monday at 11 a.m., evening performances Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m., Sunday matinee at 3 p.m. Tickets: general admission: $15, student matinees: free to elementary and high school students; students at evening or Sunday matinees: $5 with an adult; seniors: $10 (age 55 or older); (213) 489-7402 or (760) 873-8014, http://bronzeville.ticketleap.com, or at the door.
