Sarah Bellamy is the Artistic Director of the Penumbra Theatre Company in St. Paul, Minnesota. Her father, Lou Bellamy, started the Company back in 1976, as a place to create drama by, for, and about Black people. That mission has continued under Sarah’s leadership, gaining a new sense of urgency in the Twin Cities since the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police. Sarah speaks about the history of Penumbra, its place in the community, and what she sees as the theatre of the future.
