Thank you to everyone who participated in our Healthy Richmond event on February 16th!

Healthy-Richmond-Rehearsal

Healthy Richmond is a 10-year community-based project to help Richmond / North Richmond become a safe, healthy, and equitable place to live, work, and go to school. As part of that endeavor Cornerstone Theater Company was invited to Richmond to hear stories about the Richmond community’s vision for a healthy future. Those stories were then made into a play called A Soda in Richmond, by acclaimed playwright Julie Marie Myatt, and on February 16th at The East Bay Center for the performing arts Richmond community members performed the play as a staged reading.
