Commonspace LIVE: Targeted

First Person Arts and WHYY

Friday, May 26

Runtime TBA

Cost TBA


Behind the crosshairs, there is a person. Behind the person, a community. Behind the community, a history. Behind it all, the truth.

“Your kind is not welcome here.” If you’ve ever been an outsider, you know what it feels like to wear a target on your back. Witness the sobering reality of a country divided as you hear provocative personal accounts about Americans under fire.

You can’t unhear this. You can’t unsee this. You must do something.

Step into the target zone.

Directed by David Acosta

Featuring Christian A’Xavier Lovehall, Bernardo Morillo, Emi Mahmoud, and Katie Samson.

$10, $7 for members of WHYY, First Person Arts, and FringeArts
