pro·test

/ˈprōˌtest

 

a statement or action expressing disapproval of or objection to something someone has said or done.

 

Since sixty men threw 92,000 pounds of tea into Boston Harbor, acts of protest have been ingrained in the American psyche. We’ve even included it in our First Amendment rights, to ensure our right to change the way we live. We’ve used various demonstrations throughout our history to enact change, inspire generations, and pursue the rights of marginalized people. These acts of protest are the stories of our democracy. Stageworks Theatre wants to tell these stories, to share with the world the importance of American protests and the individuals who help propel them.
