blank slate theatre named "Top Places for Theatre in St. Paul" by Twin Cities Metro Magazine!
Written by Members of blank slate theatre
Demonté Marshall, a young black activist from Minneapolis, is found dead in his cell in a juvenile detention center. The JDC has ruled it as suicide, but the lines become blurred when Claire Coleman, a bright-eyed independent therapist, enters the JDC to talk with four of the youth Demonté affected the most. Battle Fatigue focuses on black youth and their mental health, while dissecting the daily workings of police relations toward black youth.

"... amazing, daring, and challenging work with young actors -- uncensored, unvarnished, and unapologetic. To label blank slate theatre as 'community theatre' or 'children's theatre' would be like calling Itzhak Perlman a 'fiddler.'" ~ Michael Paul Levin, professional Twin Cities actor
