A REGIONAL PREMIERE!
May 2 – 4, 2019 and May 9 – 11, 2019
Written by Katori Hall
Directed by Guinea Bennett-Price
The fourth of Katori Halls’ “Memphis Plays”, this is the story of a family on the cusp of hope and homelessness. The New York Times calls HURT VILLAGE “ a sprawling, energy-packed play about the last days of a Memphis housing project in the early 21st century.” Filled with rap, rhyme, and the art of dissing, this dynamic play is a lament for a proud old neighborhood awaiting the bulldozer and the coming-of-age story of 13 year old, Cookie, a girl finding and fighting her way out.
