A new play by Idris Goodwin, directed by Lisa Marie Rollins.
In a small, middle-American town called Principal, Jimmy T. Jr. wants to take his best friend Kia B. to prom. But it’s complicated—Jimmy is white and Kia is black, and Principal has been holding racially segregated proms for decades (not that they have a race problem).
In this contemporary coming of age story, filled with music and magic, rhymes and beats, Jimmy and Kia work to hold fast to their friendship.
With a little help from a musical superstar, they both fight to envision a different future for themselves and their town.
Don’t miss this unique opportunity to witness the world premiere of a new work commissioned by Theatreworks from award-winning playwright, rapper, essayist, and poet Idris Goodwin.
Idris is one of most dynamic and innovative playwrights in the country, and his works cover the most pressing issues facing our life and local community today.
