Black and Blue Matters is a satirical and interactive Hip Hop musical that offers an honest and urgent examination of tension between police and marginalized communities.

The two sides face off in a deconstructed jury trial that takes the form of a rap battle. The piece sparks an impassioned dialogue between Sammy, a Black teenager clinging to life after being shot by a white police officer, and David, the white police officer who shot him.

Presented by renowned Montreal theatre company, Black Theatre Workshop, Black and Blue Matters deconstructs the justice system, white supremacy and directly confronts anti-Black racism and how it affects all of us.

Performance dates and times to be confirmed later this fall.
