Rebranding the City was produced by the Art x Love @PLAY project, a Knight Cities Challenge Winner.

The cast includes Katie Beck, Marina Gordon, Tyler Hodges, Josy Jones, Nicene McNeil, and Neema Tamang.


Directed by Josy Jones

A series of theatrical vignettes shaped as a tour trying to convince people to come to (and stay in) Akron. The play is 75% based off of interviews with people from Akron's 24 neighborhoods and serves as a humorous (and sometimes serious), self-reflective look at where Akron came from, where it is now and where it plans to go all while giving a platform for the voices of its residents. Welcome to Akron, a place that many call home.

Next performances: 

Sunday, December 16 at 6:30 p.m. at F.A. Seiberling Nature Realm (1828 Smith Rd, Akron)
