JUMP @ PlayMakers Rep. January 2019.
A National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere
“Under the brilliant direction of Whitney White in her PlayMakers debut, this production, part of the National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere series, leans into both its comedic elements and its darkened depths. PlayMakers is even offering brief group processing sessions with licensed therapists following each performance. It is clearly their hope that if we let go of those protective, meaningless responses when someone asks how we are, we might come that much closer to a common fold of understanding and trust.”

Slammed against a poetic backdrop of Urban America, Mr. Isaiah, a recent hire at a disciplinary boarding high school, is ready to make a difference in the lives of his six male students. When one of his boys commits suicide he is plagued with the questions: Where do Black and Brown boys go when they die?; and what makes someone’s struggle so unbearable that they’d take their own life? While seeking answers to this question, he sees the sorrows that each of his boys dances with – and is reminded of his own.The reading will be Wednesday, April 11, 2018 at 7PM at The Lark.Tickets, which are free, are now available here.
