ACCORDING TO COYOTE
By John Kauffman
Oct 20 - Nov 23
This energetic collection of legends gives life to Coyote: the wise/foolish/brave/sneaky and very entertaining Trickster, teacher, magician, and hero in American Indian traditions. Lightning-paced action abounds in this imaginative blend of narrative, humor, action, music, and fantasy.

The surprising appearance of a charming, magical African leads a modern biracial couple to a better understanding and appreciation of the experience of immigrants from Somalia, Ethiopia, and Liberia and helps them consider how to connect with and celebrate one's heritage.
DR. KING'S DREAM

A young Muslim woman takes her questions about wearing a hijab to YouTube, drawing an illuminating range of responses from other American Muslims – despite the antics of her younger brother – and offering a unique perspective on Islamic culture in 21st Century America.
Mixed Blood Theatre's entertaining, eye-opening productions brilliantly spotlight the pluralistic threads of the American cultural fabric.
Easy to arrange and accommodate, these productions promote inclusion, pluralism, and individual equality, showing live theater as a vehicle for change. Equally effective for an audience of young people in a gym, college students in a commons area, families at a library, or longtime theater-goers in a million dollar concert hall, Mixed Blood's touring repertory has proven over three decades to be consistently affirming for some, eye-opening for others, and entertaining for all.
