This play is well worth seeing. It's gritty, in-your-face, but leaves you with a very clear picture of the life of a teen female gang-banger, the things she's encountered growing up that fuel the choices she makes later on, etc. The simplicity of the stage set is ingenious, and the transition from one act to the next is almost seamless.
Quotes & Highlights
“A searing, take-no-prisoners play.” —Chicago Sun-Times
The Studio 2ndStage kicks off its 20th anniversary season with Breath, Boom: the gritty, vivid story of one woman’s journey from gang girl to grown-up. The play follows fourteen years in the life of Prix as she goes from sixteen-year-old gang queen to mature, thirty-year-old woman. This will be the Washington premiere of the work of playwright Kia Corthron, an important voice in contemporary African-American theatre whose work has never seen a full production in DC. Emerging talent Rahaleh Nassri directs a young, dynamic, and multi-ethnic cast of twelve women and one man, featuring powerhouse performer Roxi Trapp-Dukes as Prix.
