brownsville song (b-side for tray)
by Kimber Lee
Directed and Choreographed by Paige Hernandez
Life in the Brownsville neighborhood of Brooklyn can feel predictable, and inevitable, but Tray has a way out. Then, when a senseless act of violence cuts his life short, his family must confront their grief and find a way to move forward. Kimber Lee’s hopeful drama shifts between memory and reality, and bids that we examine the personal pain beyond the headlines.
Featuring Lolita Marie, Sideeq Heard, Kita Grayson, Regina Aquino, Avery Collins
Praise for brownsville song (b-side for tray):
“Ms. Lee’s language is vivid and rhythmic…[and] it argues persuasively against treating the next neighborhood death as just one more sad statistic.” – The New York Times
