Brownsville Song

Check out a special presentation of the play “brownsville song (b-side for tray)” with playwright Kimber Lee in attendance Sunday, May 17th at the Suzanne Roberts Theatre. Following the 3pm matinee, Kimber will be interviewed from the stage and will be available afterward for a small reception.

The play directed by Eric Ting will be running from May 1st to the 31st and focuses on eighteen-year-old Tray, who is committed to making something of himself. He’s working on his college essay, boxing at the gym, and holding down a part-time job. When he happens to be at the wrong place at the wrong time, a senseless act ends his life, leaving his family to ponder what might have been. This poetic and powerful story jumps between a hopeful future and an uncertain present to show a unique perspective on urban violence.

WHERE: Suzanne Roberts Theatre
COST: Tickets Start at $5
