Project Overview

ROSE Community Development, in partnership with Passin’ Art (an African American theater company), is producing a play written by playwright Michael Eichler. The play, “Re- pulsing the Monkey,” focuses on the complexities of gentri- fication. Lents is now experiencing rapid gentrification and many long-time residents are at risk for displacement. The play will be performed for 6 nights, with 2 discussion panels led by ROSE’s Equity & Inclusion Leader. Tickets will be sold by local residents and members of the Lents Strong Housing Advocacy Team.
