The nation’s preeminent African American theater company stands in a quiet St. Paul neighborhood, where its intimate stage has been home to some of the most varied, piercing art in the country. Highlights have included signature productions of playwright August Wilson, who crafted some of his great works in association with the company, and the annual holiday Black Nativity. Penumbra also regularly offers education for young people, community dialogues, and study guides for its plays that delve into the rich history and complex legacy of the African American experience. Wilson’s classic play Jitney runs Oct. 13- Nov. 6, followed by this year’s rendition of Black Nativity.
