Where: ZUMIX, 260 Sumner St, East Boston, MA 02128

When: Friday, August 8th at 6:30PM

As part of the connectivity programming for the upcoming production of Leftovers by Josh Wilder, Company One Theatre is teaming up with ZUMIX, an East Boston-based nonprofit organization dedicated to building community through music and creative technology, to screen QUEST. Both QUEST and Leftovers follow the story of families living in Philadelphia, exploring how communities navigate family trauma, economic hardship, racial inequality and more. Following the film screening, join them for a conversation with Company One artistic staff and ZUMIX youth members about the connections between the fictional family of Leftovers and the real family in QUEST, and discuss how communities in Boston are affected by the content and themes reflected in both the film and the play

Make sure to RVSP for the screening and visit zumix.org for more information.

QUEST Conversation Starters:

The film includes remarks from President Obama after a mass shooting in which he notes that no matter where the violence occurs, “these neighborhoods are our neighborhoods; these children are our children.” What do you think would change if Americans saw every victim of gun violence as “our children” and every resident of communities like North Philadelphia as “our” neighbors?
