Black-Jew Dialogues, social justice comedy is coming to VCC Wednesday

The Black-Jew Dialogues, a social justice theatrical comedy, is bringing its unique blend of education and entertainment to the Vermilion Community College Theater at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, February 15. There is no admission fee; however, free will monetary donations and non-perishable food items for the Ely Area Food Shelf will be gratefully accepted.
Featuring creator Larry Jay Tish and seasoned actor Kaedon Gray, the performance tackles the often difficult issues of diversity and multiculturalism. It also speaks to the need for an ongoing cross-generational commitment to social conscience.
Praised by the Boston Globe for its ability to “get to the heart of what divides people,” the comedy pushes audiences toward a vital conversation about the changing face of America. Through its effective use of provocative satire and social commentary, the show has gained a wide appeal on college campuses and among community and religious organizations.
