ABOUT
Pick your head up and sing.

The writer of the popular “Brother/Sister Plays” trilogy – In the Red & Brown Water (MTC), The Brothers Size (Magic Theatre) and Marcus, or the Secret of Sweet (A.C.T.) – returns with an intimate coming-of-age story threaded throughout with haunting a cappella gospel music. When Pharus and Bobby compete for lead tenor in Drew Prep School’s legendary choir, their afterschool battles lead to huge revelations about love and hate.

“An exceptionally beautiful, heart-pummeling piece of theater” - Atlanta Journal-Constitution
