The news of Flint’s water crisis shocked much of the nation. However, for many, Flint is a chapter in a book about the water injustices that plague us. For centuries water has been stolen from communities; Chicago’s water filled with toxins; Chicago waste water is sent down the Mississippi Rive to the Gulf of Mexico; the Lakota people of the Dakota’s are still struggling to keep water sacred against DAPL; and places like California face a drought and consequently raging fires. This year, the youth at Free Street expose these injustices, while reflecting on the beauty and power of water, and investigating “When did water become a privilege?” The youth ensemble presents their MainStage production of”Parched (Stories of Water, Pollution and Theft),” in May 2019.
