Performances began September 15 for the world premiere of Jiréh Breon Holder’s Too Heavy For Your Pocket, a new play that takes audiences back to the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s.

Set in Nashville in the summer of 1961, the story follows 20-year-old Bowzie Brandon, a young man who gives up a life-changing college scholarship to join The Freedom Riders on their journey into the Deep South.
