The World Premiere of an interview-based play about Minnesotans

Early subscribers enjoy great pricing and best available seating choices!

Single tickets go on sale in early October.

A new play exploring empathy across geographic, political, and racial divides based on interviews with rural and urban Minnesotans — people like your neighbors, your friends, or even yourself. Investigate the power and limits of empathy in a deeply fractured world.

Who should you bring? People interested in reaching across fences to get to know their neighbors and themselves a little better; those who like asking questions and listening deeply.

“There are so many moving stories about the experiences of folks across our state and how we can walk a mile in their shoes to better understand each other.” -Rick Shiomi, Full Circle Co-Artistic Director and Park Square Artistic Associate.
