"Intelligent and often exciting... killer music and... dynamite performances." The Vancouver Province

NAC English Theatre Presentation

Produced by BoldSkool Productions (Vancouver) in association with Holding Space Productions

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.
