10 Months asks, “How does our city define itself? What can happen to a community in ten months’ time?” Through interviews, video and live actors, DTC will explore ten months in the life of Wilmington, both in the past and present. Audiences will follow stories of their neighbors, community leaders, and sometimes those of forgotten voices, through ten-month time periods in Wilmington’s early history, the occupation by the National Guard in 1968, and in present-day Wilmington. Delaware Theatre Company, March 17 – April 4, 2010.
