Will & Company, the award-winning creators of the critically acclaimed Faces of America and Portraits of Courage  anthology of plays, presents a cutting edge new series, 50 Years On, a collection of seven diverse, multicultural productions that dissect the social justice issues the new college generation must face.

About the Presentations:
The 65 minute, multi-media, 3-actor performances are intimate reflections of today's America, both accessible and provoking. Post show Q&A with the performers and playwright provides audience members the opportunity for dialogue regarding the issues presented in the play while engaging with their own communities in a discussion of their own challenges.
