"Intelligent and often exciting... killer music and... dynamite performances." The Vancouver Province
- By Omari Newton
- Directed by Diane Roberts
NAC English Theatre Presentation
This raw and passionate tale by exciting playwright Omari Newton digs deep into the lives of a hip-hop crew coming to terms, personally and professionally, with the police-shooting death of their DJ, Sammy. In the aftermath of the tragedy, this once-tight group struggles with grief in different ways. Do they carry on with canned beats? Or do they seek revenge?
With seismic hip-hop beats and powerhouse performances, Sal Capone raises a mighty fist to the difficult issues of our time – prejudice, homophobia and injustice – with grace and wit.
ADVISORY: mature themes, strong language and violence.
Doors to the Studio will open at 7:45 p.m. with a pre-show scene-setter to the performance.
Performance is approximately 89 minutes with no intermission.
