Looking for Lilith will kick off its 2017-2018 season with Cheryl Davis’ Carefully Taught. A brand new play which debuted in Brooklyn in the fall of 2015, LFL produces a regional premiere which is this script’s second production. Davis has written a searing and smart picking apart of racial biases, personal and systemic. Reviews of the premiere state, "Carefully Taught challenges us to examine perceptions of 'the other' in both our professional and private lives. It leaves us asking questions about loyalty and what fosters prejudice” (Queens Gazette). An earlier work by Davis, Color of Justice, was produced by the Juneteenth Festival here in Louisville. Following the fall 2015 original Prevailing Winds, LFL’s commitment to Carefully Taught expands its engagement with issues of racial justice.
