Two One-Act Plays by Paris Crayton III
Directed by Kalif Troy
A pre-recorded Zoom production
Chainz explores the continuing issues of racism in our country and Broken explores the ever-present issue of gun violence. Playwright Paris Crayton III does a remarkable job of presenting the touching humanity of his characters who are caught in these issues. It is in their very human responses that we can all take something home to think about and hopefully grow into a more understanding society.
Both productions primarily feature men and women of color, whose struggles: physical, societal, political, or emotional, have been relevant for more than four hundred years. In Chainz, a young teen has been gunned down and his killer set free, which leads to protests around the country. One protest, in particular, gets out of hand and lands four men from four different walks of life in a holding cell at the local police station. Through sadness, anger, joy, and tears these four men learn about each other...and more importantly, about themselves. In Broken, five women come together to work through the loss of their children to find strength through faith and each other. Ages 12+
