Our country feels more divided than ever before. People increasingly feel their voices are being ignored. It seems we’ve collectively lost the ability to listen.

(in)divisible is our response to the response to the election.

But it’s not about Trump.
Or Clinton.
Or Sanders.
Or Obama.
Or any other political figure.

Twelve local playwrights have each created two five-minute pieces: one liberal and one conservative. As the project took shape, we followed two ground rules: (1) none of the above could be mentioned or even alluded to because when they are mentioned, listening ceases; and (2) everything had to be rooted in real-life experience.

(in)divisible is about our country.
(in)divisible is about its citizens.
(in)divisible is about us.
(in)divisible is a reminder of what it means to listen.

Please join us for a non-partisan evening of new work drawn from real-life stories – equal parts liberal and conservative – some you’ll agree with, some you won’t, all from people just like you.
