In a town called Principal, Jimmy T. Jr. wants to take his best friend Kia B. to prom. But it’s complicated—Jimmy is white and Kia is black, and Principal has been holding racially segregated proms for decades. In this contemporary coming of age story, Jimmy and Kia work to hold fast to their friendship and fight to envision a different future. Don’t miss the world premiere of new work commissioned by Theatreworks from award-winning playwright, rapper, essayist, and poet Idris Goodwin. Idris is one of most innovative playwrights in the country, and his works cover pressing issues facing us today.
