Richard Gallion & RGE Return With Highly Requested Stage Play "1800 vs 2020

Writer, Director, and Actor of 1800 vs 2020, Richard Gallion is not a stranger to the set or stage. Richard has been in several TV shows, and movies from Chicago PD, Love Me or Leave Me Black Coffee, Nothing Like Thanksgiving, and more. In 2020 RGE released, what is now the highly requested and sought out stage play, 1800 vs 2020.

1800 vs 2020 is the reenactment of the slaves 1800, talking to the people of 2020. What if the slaves from the 1800s were to talk to the people today in 2020? How Would that conversation go? Is it that slaves from the 1800s were physically enslaved, while people from 2020 are mentally enslaved? How different are we in 2020? Or did the years only change? I would like to think this would be one of the most interesting, thought-provoking productions anyone has seen or written in a while.
