What We Pass On: Trauma and Resilience

Center Theatre Group invites you to attend 90-minute pre-show engagement experiences on selected nights that feature local thought-leaders in dialogue about the context, issues and ideas finding voice on our stages.*

Societies have passed on their cultural heritage through art, food, religion, and history for generations. But what about the things we pass on unknowingly? What do we hold on to, and why? For members of a community that has experienced trauma—including African-Americans like the family at the center of Tarell Alvin McCraney's Head of Passes—resilience is one of the most important legacies that gets passed on. Join us as we explore the many ways in which trauma as well as resilience transcend generations.

Plus, enjoy pre-show bites and wine. No ticket purchase is required to attend.

*An RSVP to the Community Conversation does not include a ticket to the performance at the Mark Taper Forum. Existing ticketholders are welcome to join us, but are encouraged to RSVP.
