EvCC Student Activities Presents a Free Performance of “Platanos y Collard Greens” April 26
EVERETT, Wash. – Watch a free performance of the hip-hop infused dramatic comedy “Platanos y Collard Greens” at 7 p.m. April 26 at the Everett Civic Auditorium.
The play, created by husband and wife David and Jamillah Lamb, is the story of Freeman and Angelita, two college students who fall in love at first sight. The couple confronts the prejudices of family and friends as the play explores whether love between African-Americans and Latinos can survive.
“It’s like a modern version of “West Side Story,’” said EvCC student Irina Silverstova, coordinator of the EvCC Artist and Lecture Series. “It will make you laugh, inspire you and make you think.”
Silverstova worked with two EvCC student clubs, MeCHA and the Black Student Union, to bring the play to Everett.
The play is free and open to the public. No tickets or reservations are required to attend. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. The Everett Civic Auditorium is located at 2415 Colby Ave.
The performance is presented by Everett Community College’s Student Activities Office as its Artist and Lecture event for 2013.
