FCPL Presents the Maryland Ensemble Theatre's "South & Saints": A Devised Piece in Partnership with AARCH Society and the Maryland Room
If you missed this unique presentation when it was live at the MET, now is the time to see the recording of the final performance, as we celebrate Frederick's African American history in the County's 275th year. It will be closed captioned for accessibility.
Since its inception in the summer of 1997 Maryland Ensemble Theatre has premiered over 60 new theatrical works and South & Saints was MET’s 20th mainstage world premiere. South & Saints, which opened at Maryland Ensemble Theatre in May 2023 and ran through June 2023, brought together community storytelling and civic engagement, elevating the voices of Frederick’s rich African American and Black community and their considerable contributions to the landscape of Frederick as we know it today.
The show began with conversations during the pandemic of how MET can better serve the underserved and under-resourced voices in our community. With a long-standing tradition of building plays around community issues and stories, MET and Frederick’s African American Resources and Cultural Heritage (AARCH) Society embarked on a journey that would deepen our collaborative relationship.
