Loading Dock Theatre Presents $#!THOLE COUNTRY CLAPBACK Written and Performed by Pascale Armand

Loading Dock Theatre will be presenting their first-ever digital workshop performance, $#!thole Country Clapback written and performed by Pascale Armand (Tony nominee for her role in Danai Gurira's Eclipsed). Premiering live online October 24th, this bold and dynamic one woman show explores the story of Pascale's family's immigration and her relationship with both of the countries she has called home.

This performance will be benefiting Friends of Haiti in New York a nonprofit organization whose mission is to assist impoverished families in rural Haiti by providing enhanced education, quality healthcare and sustainable economic development.

When asked about the importance of the piece and why she is doing it now, Armand said "I'm grateful to be doing this piece - not the way I expected to! - but the chance to dispel and counter misconceptions, give an audience an opportunity to meet the people I know and love and help Haiti out in any small way I can is rewarding. It's a labor of love I'll gladly engage in whenever I get the chance."

$#!thole Country Clapback

Directed By Kimille Howard

Dramaturgy by Arminda Thomas and Nathaniel Foster

October 24 at 7 PM

January of 2018, Donald Trump made an erroneous statement that compelled Tony nominee Pascale Armand to put pen to paper. Since then, she has been developing her theatrical one-woman show in response. The sweeping piece chronicles her family's immigration journey into and out of the US. Through this, Pascale comes to terms with her dual identity and the inexplicable link between Haiti and the United States that is often ignored, dismissed, or unknown. Pascale Armand's $#!thole Country Clapback takes a bold and intimate look into what makes us who we are - and where the heart calls home. The virtual reading will benefit Friends of Haiti in New York, tickets and more information at https://nyfoh.org/clapback/ and reserve your spot here
