Overview

Join us for a performance of “All American Boys,” a production based on the award-winning book by Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely that examines how two teenagers handle the consequences of racial profiling and police brutality.

The story centers on high school students Rashad and Quinn – one black, one white, both all-American boys – who are forced to confront the reality of a violent act that leaves their school and community torn apart by racial tension.

Adapted for the stage by Off the Page and presented as part of our series exploring race and language, How I Got Over

About How I Got Over series:

Join us for a new project reinventing language around race through a series of conversations and performances that explore, express and examine what it means when a social construct becomes the social order. We want people to get personal. We want provocative dialogue. We want to generate new language to execute real change. We want to talk about fear – and how it’s different if you are black or white. We want to hear people explore racism.
