Obsidian Theatre and Playwrights Canada Press are thrilled to cordially invite you to the 21 Black Futures: The Anthology Book Launch!

In 2021, Obsidian Theatre engaged twenty-one writers to create twenty-one new stories about imagined Black futures. Featuring all twenty-one plays from the award-winning web-series created in partnership with CBC Arts, this anthology presents twenty-one radical offerings to the question “What is the future of Blackness?”

Join us for a celebration of this new publication at Soulpepper Theatre (50 Tank House Lane, Distillery Historic District, Toronto, ON) on February 29th at 6pm. The event will feature readings from Amanda Parris, Cherissa Richards, and Natasha “Courage” Bacchus with a special performance by Motion.

As an added bonus, registrants will receive a discount code to access $21 tickets to the February 29th evening performance of Three Sisters by Inua Ellams, After Chekhov, at 7:30pm following the event. 

ASL interpretation will be provided. Venue accessibility is available HERE.
