My one act play "Hoodies" at Orlando Fringe Festival!


  • Lowndes Shakespeare Center 812 Rollins St. Orlando Fl. 32803 (map)

My one act play Hoodies will receive its world premiere at the Orlando Fringe Festival, May 2015. I was commissioned to write this play by Beth Marshall of Beth Marshall Presents after the recent tragedies in the state of Florida. The killing of black young men has almost become a sport, and we feel art is a way to share our voice on the situations. 

Hoodies tells the story of a young teen who was gun down by a white police officer and the aftermath stemming from it. We get an in depth look at before, during, and after the tragedy from the people it affected the most. Beth Marshall has been an advocate in making sure these stories get told. Hoodies will presented as part 3 of her award winning "Trayvon Martin project!" Get tickets and info HERE.
