Zara’s Faith: Somebody Has Got to Stand Up

The Lower Bottom Playaz at La Peña Cultural Center.

Zara’s Faith follows a woman whose two sons were stopped by police. One was murdered and the other wounded. As Zara attempts to work through her anger and grief, she receives advice from her ancestors that leads her to explore her own conception of faith and community amid the plot’s unraveling social conspiracy. The play, which was originally written by Marc Sapir before the Black Lives Matter movement arose, was performed as a staged reading at the Flight Deck by The Lower Bottom Playaz back in June. Now, the Lower Bottom Playaz, led by Ayodele Nzinga, will be presenting a newly revised and fully produced version of the play starring Black Lives Matter organizer Cat Brooks as Zara and Reginald Wilkins as supporting lead, Pastor Simms. The performance will take place at La Peña Cultural Center (3105 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley) on November 13 at 8 p.m.
