Ferguson the play’s focus was almost as dark as the walls surrounding the stage: the media’s twisted narrative. 

On April 15, Washington D.C. hosted the first public reading of excerpts from Ferguson the play on April 15 in a dramatization of the Michael Brown shooting. The Atlas Performing Arts Center performance starred D.C. lawyers as Grand Jury attorneys, and debunked the media’s “hands up, don’t shoot” narrative. There wouldn’t be a need for the play, writer Phelim McAleer announced at the event, “if journalists had done their job.”
