In an arresting one-woman show, Pulitzer Prize finalist Dael Orlandersmith seamlessly transforms into five unforgettable male characters whose outward dissimilarities belie their inescapable link: a traumatic past plagued by a cycle of violence and abuse.
A World Premiere & Goodman Theatre Commission
Taking us from Coney Island to Manchester, England, and back, Ms. Orlandersmith brings to life a series of harrowing stories that weave together each character's friends, family, lovers and counselors into an explosive narrative that uncovers the darkest corners of humanity—and shatters our notions about predators and their victims. At once powerful and heartbreakingly poetic, Black n Blue Boys/Broken Men will leave you breathless.
A co-production with Berkeley Repertory Theatre
