Summary

The Black Beans Project 
By Melinda Lopez and Joel Perez

SATURDAY, JANUARY 14
4:00 p.m.

A Globe-commissioned play
Mariana and Henry meet to share a secret family recipe that forces them to reveal secrets of their own. The siblings transform pandemic panic into renewal in this tender comedy about family, food, and finding the strength to move on. The Black Beans Project invites audiences to open a bottle of wine, chop some garlic, and savor the possibility of connecting with family after a long time apart.

Tickets to all festival readings require reservations and are free. Reservations for Globe subscribers and donors are available now through January 4, 2023. Subject to availability, reservations for the general public will be available beginning January 5 at 12:00 noon. A line for standby seating will form 30 minutes before each performance of the Powers New Voices Festival. Based on ticket-holder attendance, those standing in the standby line may be seated. Seating is based on seat availability and is not guaranteed. Latecomers with tickets are also not guaranteed admittance.
