LIVE GARRA THEATRE
"Shadowbox" is one woman weaving the tales of three women and their recollections of a bad date.
These are no small voices, you hear?!
"If I had known, if I had known you, I would have left my love at home..." Sonia Sanchez
'If you didn't want to have sex and yet you did, you were raped. If you were too drunk to be able to say, "stop" clearly and the guy knew he was doing this without your permission, you were raped.'

MISSION: Live Garra Theatre, Inc.endeavors to employ the cultural arts as a way to address universal social-life issues: to ‘live Garra’ (Portuguese for prevail), means to go-the-distance and never give up; to illuminate all facets of a multicultural society; fostering cross-cultural understanding of the many ethnic voices in the community, reinforcing the value of diversity, strengthening the social connections among people.
As a resident company and managers of the Silver Spring Black Box Theatre, the organization operates out of the space as a performance training studio; an incubator for a core repertory of skilled poets, playwrights, and artists, as well as providing a 'safe harbor' for the youth. Live Garra Theatre aspires to fill the void of culturally specific Theatre, preserving the unique legacy of the African-American heritage and contribute to the survival of Black Theatre.
