What are we afraid to talk about?

See all news

There’s so much that needs healing in our world... why are we uncomfortable talking about it? New Hampshire Theatre Project is not only talking about these issues—they’ve launched a provocative series, Elephant in the Room, about topics that we as a society often have difficulty discussing. Supported by a New Hampshire Humanities Community Project Grant, each program includes a playreading and a facilitated discussion among audience members, artists, and a panel of experts. We’re looking at our attitudes about ethical issues involved in each topic, and our mutual responsibility as a society to bring these issues out of the shadows and into a national conversation.
