New Schedule for Season 36

To our community,
George Floyd’s brutal murder by Minneapolis police officers on the heels of the killings of Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery, more recently Rayshard Brooks, and so many other Black victims of police brutality and racial violence, has caused outrage and despair around the world — including among our own Rhode Island arts community.
We at The Gamm stand in solidarity with the hundreds of thousands of people who demand justice for Black lives. We also acknowledge that racism continues to shape the unequal power structures and deep social and economic inequities of today’s world; and that the American theater – our theater — is far from immune to pernicious, systemic racism. The Black Lives Matter movement has brought new urgency to those demanding a fuller, more honest confrontation with our duties, as artists, to combat racial exclusion and bias.
