Grace Aki's To Free a Mockingbird to Stream August 9th - 16th via the SheNYC Festival of New Plays

(New York, NY) THursday, August 4th, 2022 - After rave reviews and packed houses at The Connelly Theater, Grace Aki's To Free a Mockingbird will stream Tuesday, Aug 9 at 8:00 pm – Tuesday, Aug 16 at 11:59 pm EDT. Filmed LIVE at The Connelly Theater as part of the SheNYC Theater Festival! Streaming tickets are available here.

To Free a Mockingbird is a play combining storytelling and stand-up. We follow Grace's family's journey across the sea and through the south with family secrets and lessons on how our stories get told. To Free A Mockingbird is a vulnerable and daring piece, filled with effortless humor and honesty. This is her story and maybe yours as well. After all, generational trauma is...funny.

The show's creation began in study with Seth Barrish at The Barrow Group with direction by Katherine Robards. After being selected and nurtured through 2021's SheATL festival, Grace is bringing her show to New York. SheNYC is the city's premier festival showcasing the new, original works of women and nonbinary writers, composers, & directors.
