Open Letter to Marin Theatre Company and to Our National Theater Community

You may sign in solidarity here:  ADD YOUR NAME
We, a community of African American/Black diasporic theater artists of varying cultural backgrounds, religions, sexual and gender identities, worldviews and artistic aesthetics, believe the theater industry has a responsibility to create work that does not do damage to the communities it attempts to represent on stage.

We are united in our belief that, from its very inception, Marin Theatre Company’s (MTC) current production of Thomas Bradshaw’s Thomas and Sally is an irresponsible, deeply harmful project with no accountability to black women and girls. As black artists, and as black women, we are all too familiar with our histories and our narratives being imagined through the gaze of white supremacist patriarchy. We take issue with producing organizations whose choices perpetuate the notion that we are a voiceless, powerless group, incapable of understanding how we are being represented. We take issue with the dismissal of our concerns and the erasure of our country’s violent history.

We will engage in a facilitated meeting with MTC on Tuesday, October 24, 2017. The goals of this meeting are to foster a constructive dialogue between MTC and the community, and to find a way forward that ensures both advocacy for future artists who work with the organization and the ability of MTC to present culturally diverse works in a responsible manner.

Throughout both the developmental workshops of Thomas and Sally and auditions for the production, MTC disregarded the concerns of multiple black women actors regarding the play’s hyper-sexualization of black girls and women and its reframing of the coercive master/slave relationship between Sally Hemings and Thomas Jefferson as a “love affair.” Several of these actors ultimately declined roles due to not only their initial concerns over the script but also due to the dismissive response both by the theater and Mr. Bradshaw.

MTC exacerbated these concerns through their marketing of the play. Artwork for the show depicted Sally Hemings as a grown woman, as seductive and in control of her circumstances. After promising to withdraw the image in response to community outcry, MTC continued to use the artwork on their playbills and education resource guide.

Over the course of the performances which are still running, MTC has consistently responded to community questions or expressions of pain with either flippant or gas-lighting remarks on social media and worse, with silence.

Further, in response to peaceful protest ritual for Sally Hemings by Regina’s Door, a local group mixed with survivors of sex trafficking and artists, MTC called the police. Additionally, during these peaceful actions, MTC’s security staff verbally taunted and harassed protesters who have primarily been Black women.

Finally, MTC has extended this play without regard to any feedback they have received. We strongly condemn the choice of MTC to extend this production and question the motivations behind it.

About the Play:
Cultural productions in theater and mass media directly contribute to the sexual violence against women. In lieu of an extended lesson on rape, consent and rape culture here are specific examples with which we take issue:
1)The publicity and marketing of Thomas and Sally consistently positions it as a piece that “doesn’t attempt to answer the question” between the dual sides being represented. The two sides being the camp that argues that the enslaved body has no consent or agency or the camp that argues love is complicated and that this is a love story. We disagree with this assessment. As much as Bradshaw and MTC deny this piece does not “take a side” this is a reframing of this story as a love story. It ends with a ring being offered and a love declaration from both parties. We can look to the many published critical reviews of the play to see exactly what meaning Thomas & Sally audiences are taking away from the work. (bolded lines are ours):
2)There is a moment in the play where Hemings and a friend run away from the Jefferson house in France. They are accosted on the street by a drunk Frenchman who tries to rape Sally. This moment is set up in the play as the REAL definition of rape and violence. It argues that all the other action happening in the play isn’t rape or nonconsensual/coercive violence. This subterfuge is a horrific attempt to erase the day to day violent circumstance of the slave.

What this Means:
In their refusal to respond and in their attempts to silence and erase the community response and our history, we are being told black women are not smart enough to understand our own history. We are being told we are overly sensitive, that we do not understand the theatrical form, and that we have somehow missed the message. As such, using the told and untold traumatic experiences of black women to weave a status-quo/rape culture narrative that completely erases the violence perpetrated against our ancestors and portraying these survivors as willing accomplices/lovers/concubines/mistresses (who asked for and enjoyed the trauma inflicted upon them) is extremely irresponsible, harmful and ultimately an act of violence in itself.

When we put anything on stage we amplify it, we preserve its legacy. Therefore there is a responsibility to be accountable and crystal clear as to whether we are spotlighting fiction or fact. Thomas & Sally makes no attempts other than a flimsy framing device to ensure that the audience understands it as a “kind of fiction.” The atrocities of slavery are still under suspicion by many white people. To allow people to leave the theater thinking that “slavery wasn’t that bad” (an argument often used by white supremacists) is completely irresponsible and is the definition of insensitivity toward a marginalized community.

Call to Action:
We call upon Marin Theatre Company to hold themselves accountable to their geographical and national theatrical community and adopt the following action items as the first steps to address the harm they have caused:

1) Apologize. Publicly acknowledge the mistakes you have made and their effect on our community. We request this apology be posted on all the public outlets through which you marketed the play (company website, social media etc.). In addition, we ask that you send this apology along with corrective information about consent, rape, and the sexual violence endured by enslaved Black girls and women to every patron and school group who has seen Thomas & Sally and for which you have contact information.

2) Interrogate and change your methods and processes of commissioning, developing, and producing culturally diverse work. This includes but is not limited to:

  • Commit to centering the voices and vision of marginalized people in your season selection process, developmental workshops and productions, particularly those projects that attempt to explore our experiences and historical narratives. Those working either on stage or behind the scenes should demonstrate an understanding of key social issues affecting those characters and/or subjects, including discrimination, democratic participation, criminal justice, historical oppression, and other issues of racial and economic justice, intersectionality, and equity.
  • Hire artists of color for the positions of power in the room from the inception of the work. Understand that actors, assistant directors, and interns are not always positions of power and positions such as co-director, diversity specialist, and dramaturg are positions of power only if they are allowed to be.

3) Interrogate and change your methods and processes of hiring and training staff. This includes but is not limited to:

  • Require all MTC staff and board members to undergo mandatory training in intimate partner violence, rape prevention, and sexual safety/consent.
  • Require all MTC staff and board members to undergo mandatory equity, diversity, and inclusion training.

4) Develop and release an institutional policy committing to non-carceral (not involving the state or policing) strategies for dealing with any conflict involving community members who statistically face elevated levels of police violence (e.g. Black folks, indigenous folks, trans* and gender nonconforming folks, disabled and mentally ill folks, etc.).

5) Provide thoughtful support and safety networks for any out-of-town artists you hire. This might include connecting them with local artists of color or providing counseling when the production’s subject matter could cause trauma. Educate your patrons and local community about the presence of these actors and appropriate ways to behave with both local and visiting artists of color.
6) Recognize and acknowledge that the work of facilitating critical communication about the intersections of race, gender, sexuality, ability is emotional intellectual and spiritual labor. As such, create a salaried position such as a Cultural Advisor to be involved at the beginning of a project such as this in generating dialogue, agreements, and responsible communication between artists, affected and involved communities, and the potential audience.
7) We ask MTC to publicly release an accountability plan including a preliminary timeline for the execution of the above action items as well as any other steps of redress they plan to take.

Call to Action for our National Theatre Community:
While prompted by recent events, this letter and our requests are a response to many years of watching our stories be misrepresented, censored, appropriated, and exploited. People of color across the country continue to face these issues and we recognize our allied communities in this intersectional struggle for equity and representation on stage, particularly when these representations have real world consequences.

This open letter serves not just as a recommendation for MTC but for other theater companies large and small moving forward. If MTC or any theater company across the nation wishes to create diverse works of art by telling Black or POC narratives, they must take responsibility for the messages they are promoting. Any theater institution across the nation who doesn’t have the resources to develop a piece by a person any systemically marginalized artist, should deeply consider whether continuing with the production is responsible.

Given the power of narrative and story to impact our nation’s decisions around juvenile and adult incarceration, police violence, continued violence against women and children and high rates of black women in human trafficking, we believe the stakes are too high for us to allow this to go on unchecked. We ask MTC to hold themselves accountable and we ask our national community to do the same.

24 thoughts on “Open Letter to Marin Theatre Company and to Our National Theater Community

  1. You have my support 100%. How Marin Theater Company has responded to concerns about the content of the play, how the play impacts the community of women, Black history, American history, survivors of sexual violence, and the intersectionality of all those identities, has been appalling. Thank you for doing the right thing and preserving the dignity of women of the past, present and future with this movement.

  2. This letter is so eloquent, and is of deep concern to a white woman theatre artist who would like to promote the work of young black theatre artists and black stories in my predominantly white, rural community. The fear of exploiting black artists and appropriating their stories is more than a fear. It is a reality. I hope for more diversity within my community, and more conversation around this painful, sensitive topic.

  3. I am not a woman of color, but I am a female theater artist and I strive to be an ally of marginalized people. I am very disturbed to read about this play being produced and staged with such a blatant disregard for actual history and for the multitude of people who voiced their concerns about this show before it went into production.

  4. I am proud to live in a community that cares as much about artistic rigor as they do social justice. Thanks to all of you for pressing this conversation with thoughtfulness and conviction. As a fellow theatre maker, I welcome this same level of accountability and feedback – just as I stand with you in support.

  5. Thomas Jefferson and his wife owned Sally Hemings as a child. She was raised under Jefferson’s ownership and he had sex with her after his wife died. This is a well known, undisputed fact. There is so much wrong with what Thomas Jefferson did and so many things that make his relationship with Hemings a non-consensual relationship (her age, the fact that he owned her, etc.). It is not a love affair and it is disgusting that anyone would try to glorify the relationship in this way. Framing it as consentual is dangerous, a slap in the face to the memory of Sally, supporting rape culture and pedophilia. In a day and age when misogyny and racism are becoming more overt, not to mention the fact that there is a major human trafficking/sex trade issue, this erroneous history is painful and dangerous to African Americans, women, and children – all populations who are most likely to suffer as a result of these things. As an actress, director, mother and mixed race individual, I’m very much shocked that a play about Jefferson and Sally Hemings would be produced in this day and age without portraying the true history of what happened. It is disgusting and irresponsible.

  6. This is the worst of revisionist history. Sally Hemings was Jefferson’s property and unable to consent. Rescripting their ‘relationship’ as a love affair is outrageously insensitive and irresponsible.

  7. I am in awe of the love, compassion, and integrity with which this letter was written, and the actions that you have taken to right this situation. Thank you for giving many communities of people a chance to stand in solidarity with you. Wishing you all the best today and all of us the courage to face our ugly history with honesty and not continue to glorify white supremacy, slavery, misogyny, and non-consensual sex. Culture matters. This artistic presentation was not created in a void, and thus, does not get to stand as art for arts sake when it is perpetuating harmful beliefs.


  8. Signing and sharing in solidarity. This script, this casting, this production, the marketing design, and the un-woke response by Marin Theater Company has all been absolutely negligent and irresponsible. I applaud and celebrate the brave work being done to shine a bright light on cowardice.


  9. This is horrific and shameful, MTC. You must make amends for the harm you have done and proceeded to make worse and worse in your responses to community advocacy and outcry. From one white person struggling to unlearn the pervasive toxic conditioning we have been steeped in to another – you need to listen to the pain, harm and suffering your actions have caused and take responsibility.


    • A lot of people want an update about the meeting with Marin Theatre Company. We’re still processing the many components and exchanges of the meeting and will be ready to speak publicly about it very soon. We appreciate MTC speaking with us as an initial step AND believe there is a lot more work that needs to be done and that we plan to continue to advocate for the issues and the action items that the letter addresses.The coalition’s letter addresses systemic failings around the production of works by, for, or about any marginalized group. These issues existed long before Thomas & Sally both at MTC and at theaters across the nation. Our concerns and objections are not singular to this production. Thank you for your support!

      If you have signed and don’t see your name yet it is because we have to load each name individually and that takes time but we have over 1400 of you supporting and we are working hard to reflect that on webpage as soon as possible.


  10. Signed. Would love to a play telling this story again, but this time written by African American/Black diasporic theater artists.


  11. […] In light of the recent national effort asking for accountability in white-led institutions, and the new statements of solidarity with Black Lives Matter from local and national theaters – we write with an update. Several folks have reached out to us, and asked us to give an update on the outcomes from Marin Theatre Company. (If you are interested, here is our first statement.) […]
