MEAD THEATRE LAB AT FLASHPOINT PRESENTS
READ: WHITE AND BLUE
DC's own hip hop theater duo Hueman Prophets
(Baye Harrell and Jabari Exum) team up with director
Psalmayene 24 to re-envision their story of a
white-collar author struggling to write a book about a
blue-collar ex-con. Through hypnotic rhythyms, the
play raises a lingering point about the disconnect within
social classes and the apprehension that lies within
bridging those gaps.
The lyricism and colorful music that has earned Hueman
Prophets notoriety for more than a decade will punctuate
this production of Read: White and Blue
The play first workshopped in the 2005 DC Hip-Hop
Theater Festival and later premiered as a full-length play
in the 2007 NYC and DC Hip-Hop Theater Festivals under
the direction of the late Kibibi Dillon. In February 2012,
esteemed actor/director, Clayton LeBouef, brought
new vision to the production at The Atlas' Intersections
