Based on Darius & Twig by Walter Dean Myers, this Kennedy Center world premiere commission is adapted by Caleen Sinnette Jennings and directed byEleanor Holdridge. Darius and Twig have been best friends since they were nine. Now 16, the two dream of finding a world beyond the confines of their daily lives on 145th Street in Harlem. Certainly, their talents are on their side: Darius is a highly intelligent writer and Twig is a gifted runner. But are the two free to use their gifts? A suspenseful, street-smart novel by acclaimed novelist Walter Dean Myers, Darius & Twig depicts a viscerally real setting in which young men must struggle to overcome obstacles by finding the best within themselves.
For age 13 and up. Part of the Women’s Voices Theater Festival.
Performance Timing: Approximately 1 hour, with no intermission.
