North Dakota: Legendary. Follow the trail of legends



Theatre B concludes its thirteenth season with the World Premiere of ‘The Sweet New’ by Raymond Rea, a local playwright and filmmaker. ‘The Sweet New’ is Theatre B’s first commissioned play and will be a community collaboration with The Pride Collective and Community Center. The production follows three generations of an Italian-American family as they navigate emigration, assimilation, and transformation. Who is allowed to call themselves American? What is identity? What must you overcome to realize your vision of who you really are?
