The cast of MCC Theater's BLKS met the press March 26, ahead of beginning performances April 20. The playwrighting debut of poet Aziza Barnes, directed by Robert O'Hara, will open at the Robert W. Wilson MCC Theater Space on May 9. The play stars Marié Botha, Antoinette Crowe-Legacy, Alfie Fuller, Paige Gilbert, Chris Myers, and Coral Peña.
In BLKS, a trio of 20somethings hunt for intimacy and purpose in New York City. When they need each other the most, the women rally to “resurrect their fly” in a day full of humorous and painful attempts to be heard through the noise that surrounds them.
