Division: Play on Deaths of Trayvon and Jordan

A unique play called Division, on the aftermath of the deaths of Trayvon Martin in Sanford, FL and Jordan Davis in Jacksonville, FL is underway at Valencia College East Campus in Orlando.

The play, directed by John DiDonna and featuring 15 students, will focus on the two tragedies and the effect they have had on society.

It’s an original docudrama by Valencia College Theater, exploring issues surrounding the young Black males’ deaths “through research, interviews, and collaborations with a variety of media outlets and community groups, to present an unvarnished look at the events that truly have caused, and continue to cause, great division in America today,” according to theater officials.

This would be a good play to take your teenagers to see and have an open dialogue with them on their thoughts and concerns.

Remaining showtimes are: Friday, February 13 at 7:30 p.m. (along with a pre-performance reception at 6:30 p.m.), Saturday, February 14 at 7:30 p.m., Sunday, February 15 at 2 p.m. and Monday, February 16 at 7:30 p.m.

General admission tickets: $12 each. You can buy them online at http://www.valenciacollege.edu/arts
