A Litany for Survival

For those of us who live at the shoreline
standing upon the constant edges of decision
crucial and alone
for those of us who cannot indulge
the passing dreams of choice
who love in doorways coming and going
in the hours between dawns
looking inward and outward
at once before and after
seeking a now that can breed
like bread in our children’s mouths
so their dreams will not reflect
the death of ours; .
For those of us
who were imprinted with fear
like a faint line in the center of our foreheads
learning to be afraid with our mother’s milk
for by this weapon
this illusion of some safety to be found
the heavy-footed hoped to silence us
For all of us
this instant and this triumph
We were never meant to survive. .
And when the sun rises we are afraid
it might not remain
when the sun sets we are afraid
it might not rise in the morning
when our stomachs are full we are afraid
of indigestion
when our stomachs are empty we are afraid
we may never eat again
when we are loved we are afraid
love will vanish
when we are alone we are afraid
love will never return
and when we speak we are afraid
our words will not be heard
nor welcomed
but when we are silent
we are still afraid .
So it is better to speak
we were never meant to survive.

The 2020-2021 season marks the 20th Anniversary of Prospect Theater Project.
In a non-pandemic world, we’d be having an epic party with all of you, but challenging times call for creative measures. We’ve planned a unique “Drive Thru Dinner and a Show” fundraiser that allows you to celebrate Prospect’s cultural contributions in a safe, socially-distanced fashion.
You’ll pre-purchase your yummy picnic dinner, drive-thru to pick it up, enjoying our “Shakespeare Jukebox” while you wait, and then head out to the dinner location of your choosing, firing up our one-of-a-kind live-streamed concert to accompany your meal.
Sunday June 14
5:00 – 8:00 pm
Breezeway/Alley between Prospect and the AT&T building
(Entrance on 13th Street - see map)
(Online purchases only. Box office will not be open):
$25—dinner for one and access to the concert live stream
$10—Optional adult beverage
$10—concert live stream access only (no dinner)
Whether you choose the full dinner-and-a-show experience, or opt for a ticket to the livestream show only, we've got an incredible lineup of musicians for you! Russell Irwin, Big Earl, Andrew Durr, Marirose Powell, Mattéa Overstreet, Chris Doud, and Jack Souza; engineered live by the incomparable Mark Oesau.
