Blue Door

Perisphere Theater is producing "Blue Door" by Tanya Barfield at the Silver Spring Black Box Theatre from February 24 to March 12. Blue Door is about Lewis, a highly educated and successful Black man whose White wife has left him because he doesn’t embrace his Black identity.

Blue Door looks unflinchingly at the cruel effects of slavery, Jim Crow, and the practice of lynching on one specific family. It draws a direct line through five generations of that family from slavery to the Million Man March, tracing the effect of the past on the present.

Like all good theater, Perisphere's Blue Door will increase its audience's empathy. It will address the impact that centuries of racist policy continues to have on African Americans. No other problem but racism has been with our country for so long while remaining at or near the top of our list of pressing issues. The issues it competes with on that list--climate change, education, healthy, crime, poverty--are all made worse by racism.
