An original theater production with a topical message will be staged tonight and Sept. 12 at a pair of Duluth venues.
“My ZIP Code is Killin’ Me!”, billed as an “interactive theater experience” on the intersection of health and race issues facing the community, was written by the actors and directed by Simona Simkins.
It’s inspired by data showing life expectancy varies greatly by ZIP code, Simkin said in her director’s notes.
As suggested by the word “interactive,” audience members will be encouraged to get involved and even take the place of one of the actors.
The performances will be tonight in the lower level of the former Lincoln School, 2424 W. Fifth St., and next Friday at Harbor City International Charter School, 332 W. Michigan St., No. 300. Both shows begin at 7 p.m. Admission is free.
It’s sponsored by the Health and Wellness Table, a Duluth group formed to explore health disparities in the region. Funding is provided by the Northland Foundation.
