Dandelions in the Wind

February 10, 2017

DANDELIONS IN THE WIND is the love story of a young white woman and a young black man caught up in the turbulent times of America’s Civil Rights era. Although historic events create the backdrop, the underlying question is “Where are we now – Today?”

With music that ranges from spoken word to gospel songs, and from love ballads to toe-tapping dance numbers, this play makes broad strokes on the topic of racism which still plagues us. However Dandelions in the Wind is about more than black-white racism. It has a message for all groups of people who are separated by the yawning chasm of fear and distrust. It is a step toward bridging that rift without leaving the aftertaste of a history lesson.

Seasoned, professional actors and singers share the stage with young people from the Regent Park community, providing the latter with a unique opportunity for mentorship and growth.

With weekday matinees for students (Grade 7 and up), as well as performances for the general public, Dandelions in the Wind offers an unparalleled educational and cultural experience for Black History Month.
