This is a play about love.
Underscored by a hip-hop beat.
Love which is actually about growth.
Love that challenges you and helps you better understand who you are.
It’s a new play for those who fondly remember the first few decades of hip-hop culture, who went to roller skating rinks and dubbed cassette tapes in their basement and used to videotape every episode of Yo! MTV Raps.
It’s for those who have ever been inspired by an artist, in any medium, and have felt the world disappear when they watch him or her do what they do best.
It’s for those who remember what it’s like when you’re young and falling in love.
You don’t REALLY know yourself until you identify what or who you love – and what you are willing to do in the pursuit of it.
The Realness is a celebration of exactly that.
Come celebrate with us.
The Realness is a play reading of a work in progress. Please support ATC as we pull back the curtain on the play development process by sharing digital play readings of innovative new works by professional playwrights. Be part of the experience!
