Runs April 23 - May 19, 2019
(African American Male, 20s) A scrawny, ‘high yellow’ African American man. Often plays the fool, although it’s often to cover his deep intelligence and vulnerability. An entertainer at heart. Torn between his responsibility to family and his (newly awakened) greater civic responsibility.
(African American Male, 20s) Bowzie’s best friend since childhood, who is ‘twice his size, three shades darker, and all muscle’. Bowzie is the brains and Tony is the brawn. A handyman employed week to week, he is prone to gambling and infidelity, but is actively trying to turn his life around. Earthy and hefty with a great sense of humor.
(African American Woman, 20s) Married to Bowzie. ‘A beautiful chocolate woman with a hearty figure’. Curvy and attractive. Stubborn, worldly and deeply sensitive. She possesses a wonderful sense of humor, but doesn’t suffer fools. A singer who relishes performing. She understands the world and was independent and thriving before she married.
(African American Woman, 20s) A beautician, married to Tony. So slight one might almost not realize she is pregnant. Grounded and mature. Possesses a quiet strength. When she speaks, everyone listens. A gentle powerhouse with a deep well of emotion. Rational and diplomatic, she often plays the peace maker in the group.
