The driver listens. The night darkens. The mystery deepens. Written and directed by Black Lives, Black Words co-founders Reginald Edmund and Simeilia Hodge-Dallaway respectively, RIDE SHARE steps on the gas and takes you along for the dangerous, thrilling ride. Hop in.
The solo virtual play, written and directed by Black Lives, Black Words award-winning Co-Founders Reginald Edmund and Simeilia Hodge-Dallaway, stars Chicago Native Kamal Bolden as the lead actor, who recently won an Obie award and has a history with Goodman Theatre. “Ride Share” is inspired by a series of Facebook posts Edmund shared about his personal experience of losing his current job and forced to pivot during the pandemic, which was then turned into a Zoom play that caught the attention of Writers Theatre Artistic Director, Michael Halberstam.
