The 4th production in our continuing relationship with Miami’s brilliant young award-winning playwright.
When a young man is named leader of the celebrated gospel choir at the Charles R. Drew Prep School for African-American Boys, the sweet harmonies of classical spirituals contrast with the bristling tensions that arise. A music-filled story of masculinity, tradition, coming of age and speaking your truth.
“History and secret histories, the things that free us and the things that tie us to the past are all examined in this exhilarating, multi-layered new play from Tarell Alvin McCraney.”
The Guardian (U.K.)
