The West Coast premiere of Idris Goodwin’s “break beat” play continues the Fountain Theatre’s focus on social justice.
A hip-hop trio – frontman, hype man and beat maker – is on the verge of making it big on national TV when a police shooting of a black teen shakes the band to its core, forcing them to confront questions of race, gender, privilege and when to use artistic expression as an act of social protest. Winner, 2018 Elliot Norton Award.
