Clare Coss

“DANGEROUS TERRITORY puts history, hope and a wrongfully unknown early heroine of the civil rights movement on the stage. This is drama at its best—entertaining and educating.”

Julian Bond, Board Chairman, NAACP

“Clare Coss' plays illuminate the lives of Lillian Wald and Mary White Ovington, two powerful historic women who acted with courage in the face of injustice. The plays, more vital than ever for all audiences today, are especially important for young college students to see role models of rebellious daughters and compassionate leaders.”

Rosemary Keefe, Dean of Faculty, University of Wisconsin, Superior
