Tori Sampson is a 2017-18 Playwrights’ Center Jerome Fellow in Minneapolis and the Kennedy Center’s 2016 Paula Vogel Playwright. A recent graduate of the Yale School of Drama, THIS LAND WAS MADE marks her New York debut at the Vineyard Theatre.
Liberation. Peace. Love. Self-Defense. Oakland in 1967 was a powder keg of social activism ready to boil over into radical action. For patrons of Miss Trish’s bar, it’s all just talking points — until the full, seductive and explosive force of the revolution walks through the door.
A Special talkback with Hawk Newsome, president of Black Lives Matter of
Greater New York, will follow the 3 PM performance on Saturday, July 28.
Patrons who become a Vineyard Member by July 25 will receive priority seating; limited seating for the general public will be available on a first-come, first-served basis by calling 212-353-0303, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or at www.vineyardtheatre.org.
