How We Got On: Company One's Hip-Hop Drama
The award-winning Company One stages the New England premiere of acclaimed spoken-word poet and playwright Idris Goodwin's new drama. Set in 1988, How We Got On mixes the true history of hip-hop with a coming-of-age tale about a trio of suburban Midwestern kids discovering rap as a means to escape their cultural, family and other issues, all played out with a live onstage emcee. Goodwin had a good year in 2012 -- this work premiered at the prestigious Humana Festival of New American Plays, while his play Blackademics was named the best of 2012 by the Chicago Tribune.
