Our 2012-13 Season:
How to Break by Aaron Jafferis and the Mixing Texts Collective
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 recently played a successful run at HERE in NYC, October 18- November 4, co-produced by Hip Hop Theater Festival in association with Collective Consciousness Theatre. We will produce the show here in New Haven in Sept/Oct 2013.
