America in One Room

WORLD PREMIERE. When eight strangers receive an invitation to the America in One Room convention, nobody knows what will happen. However, as each attendee files into the aptly titled Liberty Room, their insecurities, strengths, and beliefs are soon on full display. As everyone is convinced they are right—sparks fly, tempers flare, and humor abounds. Can these eight people find a way to bridge the divide? Inspired by the real-life convention of the same name, America in One Room dissects recent headlines and our nation’s past to answer the question: what does it mean to be an American?

America in One Room by Jason Odell Williams will play beginning December 8, 2021 in FST's Keating Theatre. Subscribe and see America in One Room plus three more Mainstage shows for as little as $69!


FOR YOUR SAFETY: As of September 26, 2021, FST, along with the major arts organizations of Sarasota, is requiring proof of a recent negative COVID test along with a valid ID for entry. If preferred, patrons may volunteer proof of vaccination as an alternative to testing. Masks are required for all, regardless of vaccination status except when actively eating or drinking during pre-show dining.
