Last night was the opening night for Repulsing the Monkey: A Play on Gentrification. Written by Michael Eichler, directed by Jami Rea, and produced by Passin’ Art: A Theatre Company, this partnership with ROSE Community Development seeks to open new dialogue around the complexities surrounding gentrification in a working class neighborhood. There are 5 more shows to go, May 22nd, 23rd & May 28th, 29th, and 30th. The closing night will host a community forum discussion directly following the play. Complimentary refreshments included.
