Riverwood (at Langston Hughes)



May 19th - June 5th, 2022 @ Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute

June 17th - June 26th, 2022 @ Seattle Public Theater

In the midst of city-wide gentrification, rumors of building buyouts and community displacement
swirl among the tenants at the Riverwood Apartments. When their worst fears are realized the lives of five people are thrown into upheaval. As seventeen year-old Tel and Crunch navigate their place in society as young, Black men, building super, Lenard, dreams of hitting it big in the lotto. Community warrior, Dédra fights to keep her neighborhood intact, while building manager, Miss Penny is content to do away with it all.
With painful pasts revealed and uncertain futures ahead, each member of this tight community finds themselves asking: how much would you risk in order to own your own dream? Part coming of age story, part slice of life, Riverwood explores the difficult nature of setting up roots and letting go.
