What’s Good — Nescience

Video and reporting by: Isaiah Showell

SOUTH JERSEY — Beatrice Alonna has faced many struggles as a playwright. But that won’t stop her new, original play, Nescience, from debuting on Friday night.

Nescience is essentially a compilation of real, true stories based around the central theme of stereotyping. It hopes to bring the concerns of people from a number of different racial backgrounds to a public setting.

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, Nescience will be streamed virtually beginning at 8 p.m. Friday. You can book your tickets to either one of the play’s four debut shows here. If you can’t watch Friday night’s stream, you’ll be able to catch the show at 8 p.m. Saturday, February 6, and 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Sunday, February 7.
