Set in the Brownsville neighborhood of Brooklyn, brownsville song (b-side for tray) is a powerful tale of resilience in the face of tragedy. Moving fluidly between past and present, this bold new play tells the story of Tray, a spirited African-American 18-year-old and his family, who must hold on to hope when Tray’s life is cut short. Kimber Lee’s lyrical social drama about the shocking death of a young African-American teenager is a poignant story for our time, and demands the attention of audiences far and wide.
Featuring: Leonard Thomas (Tray), Debra Harvey (Lena), Angelina Williams (Devine), Erin Mei-Ling Stuart (Merrell), and E.T. Hazzard (Junior/Brooklyn College Student)
