Deep Blue Funk presents young and adult audiences with real life histories of urban teenage parents and portrays how these young people feel about becoming parents when they themselves are still growing up and trying to establish their identities

The characters give voice to real teenagers speaking in their own voices with their own words about their own experiences

With innocence, anger, love and fear, the characters portray with passion and intensity the inner worlds of adolescents struggling with too much too soon

The life stories captured in this sensitive and revealing play transcend the boundaries of the characters' local African American neighborhood and speak of vital truths about the human heart reaching to grow up and come of age-truths which resonate with the wishes, desires, fears and misunderstanding of young people from all kinds of backgrounds and neighborhoods

To help teachers, counselors and actors facilitate discussion with young audiences, the play is published with a detailed study guide, including background information on teenage parenthood, discussion questions and classroom activities

Flexible casting, few props and a simple set make this one-act play ideal for schools and community groups
