Two teenage best friends--one a writer, the other an athlete--use their unique gifts to rise above inner-city struggles in this world premiere play based on Walter Dean Myers's award-winning novel.


On Harlem's 145th Street, best friends Darius (a writer) and Twig (a runner) dream of a world beyond the confines of their daily lives. But with Darius's mother barely scraping by, pressure from Twig's uncle to give up racing, and with bullies Midnight and Tall Boy constantly on their case, these true-blue allies may not truly be free to use their gifts. Street-smart and suspenseful, playful and profound, Darius & Twig is the story of two young men who must overcome obstacles by finding the best within themselves. (Please note: The play includes choreographed stage violence and prop guns.)
