The series was originally written and produced by Richard Durham and aired on WMAQ in Chicago from 1949 to 1951. Mr. Betts has a deep appreciation for the beauty of Mr. Durham’s research and writing skills, as evidence by Richard Durham being inducted into the National Broadcast Hall of Fame.
No Credits Productions, LLC is a multimedia organization dedicated to telling the stories of people of color that have not been told. In 2019, we will produce shows that deal with the relationship between law enforcement and communities of color plus other pressing issues to the community at large. Our first show is Black With a Capital B. Black is a short (28-minute) conversation between a black woman and a white woman momentarily linked by the death of a 12-year-old child. The intimacy that connects these two strangers is shocking. It is a murder that confounds the white woman and that the black woman finds unnervingly predictable.
The Tale of The Bullet is about a shooting told from the perspective of the bullet. All of our shows are always followed by a discussion with an expert, and the show is topped off by a musical guest. We will work with Aurora PD, DU faculty, and students, plus the community, to have meaningful conversations around these issues.
We will share a collaboration between El Centro Su Teatro with Enrique's Journey based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Sonia Nazario of an immigrant’s search for his mother. This will be told in four parts.
