12:00 p.m. Turn Me Loose at Arena Stage (Strolling Seniors)

You are invited to go with The Strolling Seniors, Tuesday, September 25th, 12:00 Noon, to the Arena Stage Theater to see Turn Me Loose.  This intimate and no-holds-barred drama chronicles Dick Gregory’s rise as the first Black comedian to expose audiences to racial comedy. His comedy spared no one including politicians, celebrities and the white supremacists who were part of his regular audience. In confronting bigotry head-on with biting humor and charm, Gregory turned his activism into an art form, risking his own safety at each performance.Turn Me Loose is an exuberant and raw tribute to Gregory’s life as a civil rights activist, comic genius and unapologetic provocateur.
