“At one point, you’re gonna be the one driving and a police officer is gonna pull you over. Cause they can, so they will. When that happens, what are you gonna do?”

February 26, 2012, Florida. A 17-year-old Black boy wearing a hoodie leaves a 7/11 carrying a bag of Skittles and an iced tea. He never makes it home. Our Fathers, Sons, Lovers and Little Brothers invites us into the infamous world of one teen, into his last moments, and into his intricate dance to the afterlife. Developed with the support of Alberta Theatre Projects and Banff Playwrights Lab.
