The North Carolina Black Repertory Company (NC Black Rep) and Wake Forest University are proud to announce JuCoby Johnson and Eljon Wardally as the winning playwrights of the “Finding Holy Ground” playwrighting commissions. The project, “Finding Holy Ground: Performing Visions of Race and Justice in America,” is funded by a $250,000 grant received by Wake Forest from the Henry Luce Foundation and is a collaboration between Wake Forest University School of Divinity, NC Black Rep and Wake the Arts.

Both playwrights will receive a $10,000 commission, developmental workshops and fully staged productions of their plays.

The plays will be staged in Wait Chapel during the 2024 National Black Theatre Festival in Winston-Salem. Community events will be held to promote discussions and reflection.
