WEST COAST PREMIERE! In rural Tennessee, 1961, protesting is a privilege with unintended consequences. In rural Tennessee at the height of the Civil Rights Movement, two young African-American couples struggle to understand justice, love, and their own responsibilities. TOO HEAVY FOR YOUR POCKET beautifully explores the sacrifices and tolls in the fight for freedom and equality that are placed, not only on the fighters, but the people they love. The play had its World Premiere at the Alliance Theater in Atlanta before moving to the Roundabout Theater in New York and won the 2017 Alliance/Kendeda National Graduate Playwriting Competition.

Performing in the Broadwater Black Box (Entrance at 6322 Santa Monica Blvd.)
