This segment of Access Houston is about the arts. Our first conversation is with Eileen J. Morris and Liz Freese from The Ensemble Theatre. Too Heavy for Your Pocket is a play inspired by the movies Selma and The Butler and when Jireh Breon Holder, the writer, began to receive first-hand perspective from his grandmother, who was a child during the Civil Rights Movement.
Our next conversation is with Mr. Robert Ross, public relations manager for The Ensemble. Robert tells us about the Annual Heart of the Theatre Performance, in which actor Roger Guenveur Smith, (School Daze, Do The Right Thang, Malcolm X) will be doing his one-man show, Fredrick Douglass Now.
Thank you for listening!
