The Word! festival features staged readings by college students of color whose pieces have been selected by the Five College Multicultural Theater Committee. The short plays or excerpts focus on themes of race and diversity.

A pre-performance reception starts at 4 p.m. The performance will begin at 4:30 p.m.

The primary goals of the festival are to identify and nurture student writers who are engaging in multicultural themes and/or aesthetics; to increase contact between the departments of theater and the communities of color on the respective campuses; and to further Five College exchange through the mechanism of a rotating festival. Learn more.
