Nya, an inner-city public high school teacher, is committed to her students but desperate to give her only son Omari opportunities they’ll never have. When a controversial incident at his upstate private school threatens to get him expelled, Nya must confront his rage and her own choices as a parent. But will she be able to reach him before a world beyond her control pulls him away?
Jasmine: Late teens. Black or Latinx woman. Sensitive and tough. A sharp bite, a soft smile. Profoundly aware of herself and her environment. Attends upstate private school but from a so-called urban environment. In touch with the poetry of her own language.
Omari: Late teens. Black man. Smart and astute. Rage without release. Tender and honest at his core. Something profoundly sensitive amidst the anger. Wrestling with his identity between private school education and being from a so-called urban community. Nya's son.
THE FOLLOWING ROLES ARE CAST WITH RESIDENT ACTING COMPANY. PERFORMERS WILL BE CONSIDERED AS POSSIBLE REPLACEMENTS SHOULD ANY BECOME NECESSARY:
Nya: Mid to late 30’s. Black woman. Single mother. Public high school teacher. Trying to raise her teenage son on her own with much difficulty. A good teacher inspiring her students in a stressed environment. A struggling parent doing her damnedest. Strong but burning out. Smoker. Sometimes drinker. Holding together by a thread.
Laurie: 50’s. White woman. Pistol of a woman. Teaches in public high school and can hold her own against the tough students and the stressed environment. Doesn't bite her tongue. A don't-fuck-with- me chick.
Xavier: Mid to late 30’s. Black man. Single father - struggling to connect to his own son. Marketing executive. Wounded relationship with his ex-wife, Nya. Financially stable. Emotionally impoverished. Omari's father.
Dun: Early to mid 30’s. Black man. Public high school security guard. Fit and optimistic. Charismatic with women. Genuine and thoughtful and trying to be a gentleman in a stressed environment. It's not easy.
