Black and Blue

Black and Blue is a solo show about a Black boy living in a society that doesn’t like it when our Black men show vulnerability, and this sensitive boy learns to bottle up his feelings and internalize his trauma. Over time, his hot pink shirts turn to faded black and his playlist turns from 90s boy bands to the gangsta rap of the early 2000’s. But at the end of this dark tunnel is a light that will lead us back to the path of joy, liberation, and freedom. Like the Backstreet Boys album, our biracial boy realizes it’s ok to be Black and feel Blue.
