Theatre in the X presents The Beast of Nubia

Theatre in the X was created in 2013 to provide the people of West Philadelphia and the African American community at large the opportunity to see professional quality theater in their own neighborhood for no cost. By removing the barriers of location and price the audience is able to experience theater that they possibly would not be able to access otherwise. Theatre in the X also provides opportunities to playwrights, actors, directors, stage managers, DJs, sound engineers, designers and vendors of color.

This year we are bringing the WORLD PREMIERE of The Beast of Nubia by Jonathan Bethea to Malcolm X Park!

In the deserts of ancient Nubia there is a magical kingdom guarded by a monstrous beast. When a merchant wrongs the beast his eldest daughter agrees to sacrifice herself in his place. What follows is a grand adventure filled with romance and excitement, as two very different people learn to cope with one another.

PLEASE support us by giving what you can and sharing this page so that we can continue to make theater accessible for years to come.
