The Meeting

Jan 28 - Feb 15, Ocean State Theatre Company, Warwick

In late January, OSTC will present the New England premiere of Jeff Stetson’s fascinating and dramatically compelling play, The Meeting. This eloquent play depicts the imagined meeting of two of the most significant men of modern times: Malcolm X and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Differing in their philosophies, but alike in their desire for equality, the two men debate their conflicting approaches to the same grave social problems. Both understand they may have to give their life for their beliefs, but neither is aware of how soon their assassins’ bullets would await them. In time to celebrate Black History Month, this thought provoking play takes an intimate look at two larger than life figures.

Previews for all productions are scheduled for Wednesday at 7:30pm and Thursday at 2:00 and 7:30pm. Opening weekend performances will be held on Friday at 7:30 pm, Saturday at 7:30pm and Sunday at 2:00. All other performances will be held Wednesday through Saturday evenings at 7:30pm, as well as select Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays at 2:00pm. The theatre is located at 1245 Jefferson Boulevard, Warwick, RI. Preview performances will be $30.00 for plays and $39 for musicals. All other performances will be $34.00 – $49.00 for plays and $39.00 – $54.00 for musicals. Discount rates for groups of 20 or more will also be available.
