Almost Live: Redbone Coonhound
Hosted by VocalEye
VocalEye and the Arts Club Theatre have been working together to make theatre more accessible for audience members who are blind and partially sighted since 2010. We’re thrilled to share another Listen to This audio play with our Almost Live audiences.
Out for a walk in their West End neighbourhood, Mike and Marissa—an interracial couple—meet a dog with an unfortunate breed name: redbone coonhound. This small detail unleashes a cascading debate between them about race and their relationship that manifests as a series of micro-plays, each satirizing contemporary perspectives on modern culture. Through its hard-hitting comedic elements, Redbone Coonhound explores the intricacies of subtle and overt polemics of race, systemic power, and privilege in remarkable, surprising, and hilarious ways.
Host Amy Amantea will be joined by the playwrighting team Amy Lee Lavoie and Omari Newton.
The VocalEye virtual lobby opens at 6:30 pm Pacific Time for some socializing and community updates with host Amy Amantea. The pre-show introduction will begin at 6:45 pm with Amy and guests. The featured show begins at 7 pm followed by conversation, Q and A and a prize draw.
If you’ve never attended a VocalEye Almost Live Zoom event before, you can register for just one event or sign up for the full season. A Zoom link and reminder will be sent to you on the day of the event.
Almost Live events are designed for people with sight loss, but everyone is welcome.
