The Off-Broadway premiere of BLKS by poet and playwright Aziza Barnes, directed by Robert O’Hara, is set to open May 9 at the Robert W. WIlson MCC Theater Space. Set over the course of a day as humorous as it is painful, the new play follows a trio of 20somethings hunting for intimacy and purpose in New York City.
The cast is led by School Girls' Paige Gilbert, Is God Is' Alfie Fuller, and Antoinette Crowe-Legacy (If Pretty Hurts Ugly Must Be a Muhfucka) as Octavia, Imani, and June. They drink a lot. They smoke a lot. They try to have sex...a lot.
Rounding out the cast Off-Broadway are Marié Botha, Chris Myers, and Coral Peňa.
