The Fade To Black Play Festival (created by Shabach Enterprise, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization) has developed an exciting new platform! We are Houston's first and only play festival to showcase the new works of Black playwrights!
Each year, as we bring more programs to life, the Fade To Black movement grows stronger! Within the span of five years we will have already produced the plays of almost 70 amazing playwrights and utilized the talents of our culturally diverse theatre community of local actors and directors.
Our new reading series is energetic, colorful, edgy and urban! Experience the movement of Fade To Black!
