BLACK GIRL JOY by Phanesia Pharel 

directed by India Nicole Burton 

"I wrote Black Girl Joy to process my experiences as a teenager with grief and housing insecurity. There is a connection to the specific neglect of black American girls and those that become houseless," Pharel said. "I am excited to explore it with abigail jean-baptiste, Egg & Spoon Theatre Collective and viBe Theater Experience in a safe and closed environment."

Black Girl Joy takes place at a women's shelter in Miami, where four girls come together to share their story. Black Girl Joy shifts between memory, choreo poems and a juicy plot. It is a ritual play for black girls/women to heal from intimate partner violence, a loss of girlhood, and the death of friends.

Something.. some monster maybe .. is stealing food, gems, rope, and merchandise from the captain of the Pirate Ship.

I DON'T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT  by Bradley Hayward 

directed by Derdriu Ring 

Being a teenager is hard…and no one wants to talk about it! This is the theme of this unique ensemble piece that explores what life is like as a young adult.

Confronting the daily challenges of growing up, this series of monologues and scenes offered a look at a multitude of issues — including dealing with parents who just don’t get it, rumors, bullying, and suicide. By turns funny and tragic, the gritty details of adolescence surface – exposing the things teenagers can’t, won’t and don’t want to talk about.
