HOODED, OR BEING BLACK FOR DUMMIES (Mainstage)

By Tearrance Arvelle Chisholm

Jan. 18 - Feb. 10

Directed By Betty Hart

“Hooded…” is a timely and irreverent examination of two very different 14-year-old black boys growing up in America. Meeting in a holding cell, Marquis, a book smart prep-school kid from suburban Maryland meets Tru, a street savvy Baltimorean. Tru thinks Marquis has lost his “blackness” and pens a manual entitled “Being Black for Dummies” to help him navigate a world of cheerleaders, Black Lives Matter, 2Pac, Nietzsche, Apollo and Dionysus—each vying for Marquis’ future.
