2013-14 Season

How to Break by Aaron Jafferis and the Mixing Texts Collective (October 2013)

at ECA Arts Hall, 55 Audubon Street, New Haven

Recipient of the Thomas Barbour Playwright’s Award, this new play sneaks into a hospital room with a fake ID, a potty mouth, and a bad case of heartsick. A pediatric hematologist, a folk singer, and a nurse with a beatboxing problem try not to screw up two hospitalized teenagers,  a b-boy with sickle cell and a popper with leukemia, as they break through their diagnoses in search of a gut understanding of what it means to be “ill”.

How to Break played a successful run at HERE in NYC in 2012. We brought it to New Haven in 2013 and played a sold out performance at the SPKRBOX Hip Hop Theatre Festival in Oslo, Norway in 2014. Most recently, the play was performed at NAMT in New York City and in Hartford, CT at Hartbeat Ensemble.  Stay tuned as this exciting new play continues to make moves!
