Tearrance Arvelle Chisholm’s irreverent play follows a book-smart prep-schooler and a street-savvy drop-out from inner-city Baltimore, as the two spend the night in a holding cell.

Serge Seiden directs a world-premiere production of the final play in the three-part series Clamorous Encounters: Coming of Age in America, billed as “likely the most urgent and pressing play in Season Two.” In previews.
