In[HEIR]itance Project presents EXODUS: Homecoming

What’s Happening

May 5 and 6, 7:30 pm; May 7, 2:30 pm
Attucks Theater

This brand new play, Exodus: Homecoming, is debuting as part of the Virginia Arts Festival 25th Anniversary Season at the Historic Attucks Theatre.

Inspired by the inherited Exodus narrative, this funny and thought-provoking drama re-imagines the seven cities as an intergenerational family and explores the hidden (and not so hidden) struggles of the 757, and how the cities are trying to work together as they reckon with a rich and complex regional history.

The In[HEIR]itance Project is a national arts organization that helps disconnected communities navigate challenging civic conversations through the co-creation of a new piece of theater. This play was created through conversations with hundreds of Hampton Roads citizens, as well as through explorations of the book of Exodus and in-depth research with leading local scholars, professors, and community leaders.

Facilitated in partnership with Hands United Building Bridges and United Jewish Federation of Tidewater, this project was made possible by the generosity of the Lippman Kanfer Foundation for Living Torah, the Hampton Roads Community Foundation and Virginia Humanities, the Helen G. Gifford Family Foundation, and a community grant from Tidewater Jewish Foundation, as well as local donors.

Tickets are being sold in a “Pay What You Can” model and 100% of the box office proceeds will go to local artists and arts organizations working with teens in the community. Purchase tickets at https://secure.vafest.org/inheiritance/.
