2 new theater happenings

Seattle Times theater critic Misha Berson points out two performances happening on Friday: one featuring works written by homeless youth; another inspired by Trayvon Martin.

Orion Out Loud, a writing workshop at the James W. Ray Orion Center in downtown Seattle, will host a free performance of works by homeless youths. Founded by Cornish College of the Arts students, Orion Out Loud is an intensive, four-day session. Pieces generated from it will be performed by professional actors at 7:30 p.m. May 18 at Raisbeck Hall at Cornish.

–Brownbox Theatre presents “Hoodies Up!”: short plays inspired by the shooting death of black teen Trayvon Martin. The evening will feature original works from seven Seattle playwrights: Kathya Alexander; Jose’ Amador; Najee Sui-Chang; Lois Mackey; Paul Mullin; Nick Stokes; and Sharon N. Williams. 7:30 p.m. May 18 at Rainier Valley Cultural Center. Tickets here. All proceeds benefit the Trayvon Martin Foundation.
