Some poems are better written in flesh

After Wall Street and Tahrir Square

After ISIS and the NSA

After Ferguson and Eric Garner ...

Here come the poets!

In a downtown poetry slam with a place on the team to be won, eight young poets prepare to do battle

But backstage it's all kicking off with love triangles, families to feed and wounds to rip open

And in the end, is it about winning or finding the words that need to be said?

This acclaimed ensemble work fuses the frenetic energy of a live poetry gig with a heartfelt cry of protest from contemporary America

Fearless, compelling and utterly original


Colon's script includes some beautiful poetry. And there are certain moments that are so well acted, so poignant, that they bring tears to the audience's eyes" ~ New Statesman
