In our new home in Hell’s Kitchen, MCC has launched a STUDENT MATINEE program, creating performances specifically for high school and college students at a REDUCED TICKET PRICE. Every MCC production includes a student performance and a TALKBACK with the cast and creative team post-show.
The MCC staff provides educators with STUDY GUIDES as well as the possibility of pre and post-show classroom WORKSHOPS for a small additional fee.
UPCOMING STUDENT MATINEES
by AZIZA BARNES
directed by ROBERT O’HARA
WHEN SHIT GOES DOWN, YOUR GIRLS SHOW UP. As sharply funny as it is poignant, BLKS introduces us to Octavia (PAIGE GILBERT / MCC’s SCHOOL GIRLS), Imani (ALFIE FULLER / IS GOD IS ), and June (IF PRETTY HURTS, UGLY MUST BE A MUFHUCKA)—three twenty somethings in New York City hunting for intimacy and purpose in a city that doesn’t seem to care. They drink a lot. They smoke a lot. They try to have sex. A lot.
When they need each other the most, the women rally to “resurrect their fly” in a day full of humorous and painful attempts to be heard through the noise that surrounds them. ROBERT O’HARA (BOOTY CANDY, MANKIND) directs. Poet AZIZA BARNES makes their playwriting debut which signifies the arrival of a wholly original voice.
