2024 Season Productions
Studio Stage (February 2024) - Greenfinch Theater
"Dutchman" by Amiri Baraka
Starring Eileen Engel & Cameron Jamarr Davis
In an emotionally charged and highly symbolic version of the Adam and Eve story, an unsuspecting Black man is encountered by a mysterious and calculating white seductress alone on an underground train. On their journey intellect, expectation, and flirtation collide, spiraling irrevocably to a shocking, inevitable climax meant to cyclically repeat itself again and again. A play of mythical proportions, this production crosses barriers of time and space to immerse and implicate modern audiences in fresh, thought provoking lights. A ritual drama, Soul Siren Playhouse presents this bold and challenging work written with a distinct sociological purpose: to galvanize audiences into revolutionary action.
Main Stage (Fall 2024)
"Pass The Okra" by Zahria Moore (World Premiere)
Follow Monica, a Black, St. Louis raised, college student who becomes pregnant following the overturning of Roe v. Wade and, subsequently, the abolishment of abortion in Missouri. Through an exploration of self, choice, and history, Monica finds a way to safely and discreetly have an abortion. Pass the Okra as a new work offers questions for Black theatre in the wake of the overturning of Roe v. Wade as Black stories engage in intergenerational conversations on abortion.
Next On Screen: "REPENT"
A Soul Siren Playhouse Original Film
After years of a troubled relationship with a tenured professor and competing at an elite school, Renae finds herself making an unimaginable confession after losing herself and her ability to cope.
Set for production Winter 2024 into 2025, our next Public Siren Advocacy (PSA) Film examines the reality of institutional discrimination from the perspective of academia, and its overwhelming implications on the success, safety, and mental health of students under its influence.

Soul Siren New Works Series
Support the creation and development of new works! Our new works series works to produce and present original works ready for audience feedback on their way towards production. Your contributions go directly to the playwrights, actors and other artists who bring these stories to life from page to stage. You further support these projects in their development journey by attending our staged readings and audience talkbacks!
Our 2024 New Works Series will feature a produced live reading of "Death Jam" written by Soul Siren Playhouse Executive Artistic Director, C. Jamarr Davis.
This mixed-media theater experience boldly encounters the wild highs of life and devastating lows of death, aiming to inspire viewers to examine and champion their own personal battles with mental wellness, personal resilience, and suicide prevention.
Playhouse Writer's Circle
