ASHEVILLE — A virtual production of “The Three Pigs & The Red Line” — inspired by a history of ‘redlining’ and urban renewal in Asheville’s Black community — will be presented by The University of Asheville theater program at 7 p.m Friday, April 16, or 2 p.m. Sunday, April 18.

The production is told through “toy theater,” combining shadow puppetry, paper puppetry and crankies. The family-friendly adaptation of the classic fable aims to spark a conversation around Asheville’s complicated history and how it continues to affect people today.

Ticket cost is on a donation basis, with a suggested donation of $9, or $3 for students. Click here for details.
