|A soul-filled story with laughs, tears and a funky beat
The World Premiere of Right On opens at Horizon Theatre in Little Five Points on Friday, July 18, 2014.
Bella, a Black activist-turned-business executive returns to the alma mater where she led protests clad in a dashiki and afro. Along for the trip is her Harvard-bound son Kyle, carrying his own demons in his backpack. But this homecoming quickly turns into a roller coaster reunion with Bella’s friends, as they re-frame, rewrite, and reclaim their complicated pasts. Old flames and rivalries heat up, new challenges arise and Kyle gets a real talk, no jive education about the choices made by the young, gifted and free who set out to turn the tide. In the funky groove of Soul Train and Sly, two generations take each other higher in this powerful and funny story of change makers and their legacies.
