One day 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 one teen’s now-infamous last moments, and his intricate dance to the afterlife.

Written by Makambe K. Simamba and presented by b current performing arts, Our Fathers builds a space for the Black community to grieve together and interrogates the relationship between personal tragedy and community anguish. Our Fathers was developed with the support of Alberta Theatre Projects and runs at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre April 11 to 18, 2019.
