Loving and Loving is inspired by the story of Richard and Mildred Loving, an interracial couple from rural Virginia who were arrested in 1958 for the crime of being married. Their decade-long legal struggle resulted in a landmark civil rights case decided in 1967, which upheld their right to live as husband and wife and struck down all remaining state bans on interracial marriage. Beginning in the present day and delving into the historically rich 1950’s – 60’s, Loving and Loving looks at this nearly 50-year old story from a 21st Century perspective, exploring the enduringly complex nature of intimacy, identity, and the impact of the law on our most personal decisions.

This project has been made possible, in part, by the Puffin Foundation.

Developed with the support of Rising Circle Theater Collective at the 2014-2015 INKtank Play Development Lab for Emerging Artists of Color, and Brooklyn Arts Exchange.
