Event description

Description

The Black Arts & Cultural Center's Face Off Theatre Company continues their dynamic third season with the powerful production of Sunset Baby, by up and coming powerhouse playwright, Dominique Morisseau!

Kenyatta Shakur is alone. His wife has died, and this former Black Revolutionary and political prisoner is desperate to reconnect with his estranged daughter, Nina. If Kenyatta truly wants to reconcile his past, he must first conquer his most challenging revolution of all – fatherhood. Sunset Baby is an energized, vibrant, and witty look at the point where the PERSONAL and POLITICAL collide.

"[A] smart and bracing new play about two generations of urban outlaws struggling to stay afloat in the lower depths […] Without ever sounding merely expositional, on the one hand, or dialectical, on the other, [Sunset Baby] covers vast acres of social and political ground. Among the subjects: the parallels between criminal acts in the name of revolutionary change and plain old street crime; the changing and unchanging face of paternal absenteeism; and the toll on trust – and the possibility of love – taken by a culture of survival." - The New York Times

The cast for this Kalamazoo production includes: Jordan Mosely as Nina (Face Off Theatre-Dreamgirls, The Colored Museum, In the Blood), Duane Shabazz as Damon (Face Off Theatre-The Brothers Size), and featuring long time community actor, director, playwright, and radio personality Buddy Hannah as Kenyatta.

*Warning: This production contains explicit language, adult themes, and sexual content. Not recommended for youth under 15 years old.
