MARCH 15-25, 2006 | 8PM | BREATHE: A PLAY BY JAVON JOHNSON
When two teenagers (one black, one white) are involved in separate acts of violence the consequences they face are based not only on evidence, but also on the color of their skin. Using urban poetry, BREATHE explores the tensions, decisions and conditions that leads the boys to prison and the effect their imprisonment has on their families.
