CLEVELAND SCHOOL OF THE ARTS THEATER PROGRAM PRESENTS: SAY HIS NAME
When Malcolm, an unarmed young black man is killed by a white policeman, his death upends the lives of those he knew and others he never met. While his heartbroken cousin Joseph is urging restraint, his sister Ariel and Malcolm’s girlfriend Nia seek revenge. The daughter of the female Chief of Police attends a march the next day that turns violent, landing her in jail along with her girlfriend, putting her mother’s job in jeopardy. Meanwhile the white policeman’s wife, who is black, wonders if she ever really knew the man she married. SAY HIS NAME, co-written by theater students and Dr. Miller, explores the nature of guilt and our understanding of the complexity of human relationships.

Thank you for generous support, reaching CSA’s artist scholars and professional local artists. Special thanks is expressed as the CSA Festival of New Works is supported in part by the residents of Cuyahoga County through a public grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture. It was also made possible in part by state tax dollars allocated by the Ohio Legislature to the Ohio Arts Council (OAC). The OAC is a state agency that funds and supports quality arts experiences to strengthen Ohio communities culturally, educationally, and economically.
We also thank YOU, for joining us to experience amazing art, created by Cleveland’s own talented youth.
Together we celebrate CSA!
