THEATER/MUSIC | Sankofa Evening of Theatre and Jazz 

Now in its ninth year, the Sankofa Evening of Theatre and Jazz Festival is a late-summer staple on the Rochester arts scene, and an important showcase for original plays by African-American writers. The featured play for the first weekend is "4 Men on a Couch," an "urban comedic drama" by award-winning playwright Anne L. Thompson-Scretching, who will be present for the opening night performance and reception on Saturday, August 25.  The second weekend will feature seven contemporary one-act plays in settings ranging from the Civil War to Motown, dealing with such topics as crime, racism, and family relations. A theater package is available for both weekends. For complete performance and ticket details, contact Mood Makers Books at 271-7010, or go online to

Sankofa Evening of Theatre and Jazz Festival will take place Thursday, August 25, through Saturday, August 27, at 7 p.m. (also 2 p.m. on August 27), and September 1 through September 3 at 7:30 p.m. Hosted by MuCCC, 142 Atlantic Avenue. Ticket prices vary.
