The Golden Dragon

A beautiful giant cricket is exploited by an ant, stewardesses 30,000 feet in the air speak to boat people in the Atlantic, a tooth lands in a bowl of soup, and a dead boy is carried thousands of miles home on a river. Wielding a dreamlike kaleidoscope, making and remaking connections that span the globe, Schimmelpfennig tells The Golden Dragon’s tragicomic tale of globalization. It’s set in your local takeout, wherever it and whomever you might be.

The nationally acclaimed and award-winning, No Child, is a one woman play set in a tough, Bronx high school that traces the efforts of a young teacher to engage a class of uninspired and underachieving 10th graders by challenging the students to put on a play. Funny and buoyant, yet never shying away from the sobering truths of the urban lives and neighborhoods it depicts. No Child, celebrates the positive difference one passionate person and a class of inspired kids can make in a troubled place.

Reenah Golden is a performance poet, spoken word artist, actress, social activist and educator. For over 15-years Reenah has been using the power of the spoken word to affect change and create new ways of thinking.

Pedal Pittsburgh

Pennsylvania's largest bike ride! Join the fun - 3 rivers, 7 parks, 22+ neighborhoods, 4 bridges, 72 streets, and 4000+ cyclists!

Since 1994, Pedal Pittsburgh has been the region's leading bicycle event. It's a casual, fun ride that exposes people of all ages and fitness levels to the neighborhoods, parks, bridges, and geography that make our region so unique. Pedal Pittsburgh showcases Pittsburgh as a safe, bicycle-friendly city, and encourages people to get out and get healthy. The event brings together athletes, families, community leaders, outdoor enthusiasts, and advocates for bicycle transportation. It promotes a form of lifelong recreation that is good for the body...and the environment.

By working closely with the city, BikePGH is creating a route that will be closed to traffic for some sections. This is a first for the event. It increases safety dramatically and encourages everyone to join the ride.

With a combination of food vendors and entertainment, this year's PedalPGH will include a post-ride festival that will further enhance the entire experience and make PedalPGH a "must do" event.
