The New Coordinates, formerly The New Colony, has announced new dates for its world premiere Love in the Time of Jonestown - A Radio Play, streaming on demand from November 21 - December 12, 2021 at thenewcoordinates.org.

We want you to be safe - to feel supported. We want to create space for everything about you because we love you exactly as you are. We want to break oppressive systems and rebuild a world that not only accommodates all of us, but celebrates and fosters our beautiful individuality. All we ask is that you come with an open mind, an open heart, and a willingness to dialogue. Welcome to Jonestown, we hope you'll stay.

 

The production team includes Eric Backus (sound design and original music), Nadya Naumaan, (associate director), Catherine Miller (dramaturg) and Devonte E. Washington (production stage manager).
