Join AFD

"Nine" 2015


Since we're unable to gather in person anytime soon, we're working hard to offer some options you can enjoy from the comfort and safety of home. 

Please join us as we explore special programming that seeks to raise historically marginalized voices, and to tell vital stories about women, Blacks, immigrants, and more!

DECEMBER 17, 2020: "Who Will Sing for Lena?" by Janice Liddell

This stunning one-woman production won awards for Lexington Players in 2019; it was taped at AFD, and the author has agreed to open access for a limited period of time. After the play, there will be a virtual talk-back with the director, actor and playwright.

"Lena" tells the story of a Black domestic woman in Cuthbert, Georgia, who killed her long-time white lover/abuser after a night of drinking and arguing. After a brief trial, a jury of twelve white men found her guilty and sentenced her to the electric chair.

This program is for MEMBERS ONLY. And membership is only $20.

So join and enjoy a series of important productions this season. 

Once you join, we'll share the access codes to the performance.

JANUARY: Live from the theatre, important historic speeches delivered by live actors.

MARCH: Women's History Month

APRIL: Dynamic Duos, famous scenes from well-known plays
