Event description

Description

A timely, irreverent examination of growing up black in America by local, rising-star playwright Tearrance Arvelle Chisholm. "Hooded" follows Marquis, a book smart prep-schooler from suburban Maryland, meets Tru, a street savvy Baltimorean, in a holding cell. Tru thinks Marquis has lost his “blackness” and pens a manual entitled “Being Black for Dummies,” as they navigate a world of cheerlead- ers, Black Lives Matter, 2Pac, Nietzsche, Apollo, and Dionysus—each vying for Marquis’ future.
