SEED World Premiere In New York
Classical Theatre of Harlem & The Hip Hop Theater Festival present
The Off-Broadway & World Premiere of SEED
A New Play by Radha Blank, directed by Neigel Smith
"Radha Blank's provocative play SEED is brought to vivid life by a dynamic cast." - TheaterMania.com
"The questions this play asks about race, social status, education, and family make it an important piece of theater." - Backstage CRITIC'S PICK
Burnt-out social worker Anne Colleen Simpson decides to leave the field on a high note, with a book detailing her career, but when Chee-Chee, a gifted twelve-year-old from the ‘projects’ collides into her life, she’s forced to confront his young mother and the shadows of her past. Anne and Chee-Chee develop an unlikely friendship that leads to an explosive encounter threatening both their futures. Infused with the vibrant rhythm and verse of Hip-Hop culture, Seed weaves through the fault lines of a gentrified Harlem, begging the question: How far are you willing to go to protect the future of a community and its children?
LIMITED ENGAGEMENT THROUGH OCTOBER 9TH
