n 2002, Parks whimsically decided to write one play a day for an entire year, resulting in her brilliant collection, 365 Days/365 Plays. In 2007 the premiere of 365 Days/365 Plays became a national phenomenon, with over 700 theaters across America collectively presenting all 365 plays, creating one of the largest grassroots collaborations in theater history. Parks designed this massive premiere to include as many theaters as possible, crossing ethnic, racial, and economic lines.
While Parks states that 365 is a black play she also comments that maybe what that means is black plays are plays that cross boundaries. While some of the selected plays deeply reflect the African American experience, the plays altogether cross boundaries and reflect a broader, multiracial and multicultural perspective of America.
365 Days/Plays beautifully fulfills our mission to produce plays addressing diversity and social justice from a cross-cultural point of view, with the opportunity to engage a diverse cast and production team.
