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 six years we will have already produced the plays of almost 80 amazing playwrights and utilized the talents of our culturally diverse theatre community of local actors and directors.

Our newly developed winter Reading Series was created as an extension of our summer Performance Series and reaches a more urban crowd.
