While many of these plays can’t be cast with our population, many of them can. This appears to be a rich resource of plays we should consider for our ever changing population of students.

An artist is a sort of emotional or spiritual historian.  His role is to make you realize the doom and the glory of who you are and what you are.  He has to tell, because nobody else can tell, what it is like to be alive.  James Baldwin

Subject: [Theaterfacultystaff] The Mix - curated by Aaron Carter

The Mix is a new play resource highlighting plays that feature casts of intersectional and intersecting social identities.

MFA Playwriting alum Aaron Carter started The Mix at Steppenwolf, and Laura Jacqmin (MFA Playwriting) has a play on the list.

I'm not sure how to use this list!

Maybe we present it to the students and say, let's read some?

Most of them we can't cast with our population, but we can certainly read and discuss!
