Drexel Theatre Program Presents:
Resilient: Black Bottom
A devised show about West Philadelphia’s Black Bottom Neighborhood
Created by Carlo Campbell, Brett Ashley Robinson and the Company along with Playwright/Dramaturg Adrena Williams
Directed by Brett Ashley Robinson
A deep dive of discovery into the Mantua neighborhood of West Philadelphia that was formerly known as the Black Bottom. Once a thriving neighborhood of middleclass Black residents, this neighborhood has forever been changed by the growth of University City. This piece will look at building community and how we all work together to make that a reality.
Note: There is no late seating for this performance. All tickets will be released 5 minutes past curtain.
