HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DICK GREGORY!

Don’t miss this opportunity to celebrate the life of this Civil Rights leader with family and friends at a Champagne Reception in the Grand Foyer at Arena Stage immediately following this amazing play.

TURN ME LOOSE
Friday, October 12, 2018

We have purchased a block of tickets in the Orchestra Section
at Arena Stage for this performance. Seating is limited, so purchase
your tickets today. Following the show, we will also mark the occasion of
Dick Gregory’s 86th birthday with a special cake and Champagne Reception.

Tickets for the play and reception are $100.

Please join us at this historic event to celebrate the life of Dick Gregory 
who was a strong advocate for DC statehood. Proceeds from this event 
will benefit the Statehood No Other Way (NOW) Foundation. 
Tickets to this event are not tax-deductible.

 This intimate and no-holds-barred drama chronicles Dick Gregory’s rise as the first black comedian to expose audiences to racial comedy. His comedy spared no one – including politicians, celebrities and the white supremacists who were part of his regular audience.

In confronting bigotry head-on with biting humor and charm, Gregory turned his activism into an art form, risking his own safety at each performance.

TURN ME LOOSE, starring Edwin Lee Gibson, is an exuberant
and raw tribute to Gregory’s life as a civil rights activist, comic genius
and unapologetic provocateur.

Playwright – Gretchen Law | Director – John Gould Rubin
In association with John Legend and The Will and Jada Smith Family Foundation

You may send a check or money order, made out to the Statehood NOW Foundation, to 4501 Western Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20016, if you so choose. For more information, please call U.S. Senator Michael D. Brown at (202) 330-3519.
