Thank you for attending our production of Daniel Beaty’s Mr. Joy. There is a lot to process in this story – some of it to be delicately considered – others to be celebrated with abandon. Either way, it’s clear to me that the performance is Act 1, the conversation that we have following each performance is Act 2, and the way we carry the ideas into the world is Act 3.
What connects for your neighborhood? Is there a place everyone goes?
What have you inherited in your neighborhood or your community? How does it challenge you? How does it make you stronger?
Where do you see joy in your daily life? What are the ways you can reach out to people around you and create more opportunities for joy?
