The journey of two teen boys and a life-altering incident
TWIN CITIES PREMIERE!
By Jody Drezner Alperin and Vicky Finney Crouch
Based on the book by Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely
“At once timely and timeless, funny and wickedly smart... about what it means to be a young man in America— across lines of race—and what it means to be a GOOD person in America—across lines of Everything.” – Jacqueline Woodson
The lives of Rashad Butler and Quinn Collins, two high-schoolers, one black and one white, powerfully intersect after they are thrust into the center of a violent act of racism. The story, told through the two boys alternating perspectives, follows their journey as they grapple with the complications that reverberate through their families, school and town. Based on the award-winning book by Brendan Kiely and National Book Award winner and Ambassador of Children’s Literature, Jason Reynolds the play reflects the devastating impact of racism even as it spirals to a hopeful view on resolving racial conflict.
