Written by one of Atlanta's theatrical talents, these thought-provoking one-act plays from Rising Sage Theatre Company examine what it means to be a black man in America and look at the aftermath of gun violence. Chainz tells the story of four men who meet in a police station holding cell following the protest of a young teen's death.
