About the Event

 

Juicy’s family has been raising and barbecuing pigs for three generations but all Juicy wants, is to get his online degree in Human Resources and get as far away from pigs as he can. But his dreams are halted when his mother and his uncle’s wedding use up all his tuition money and the ghost of his father shows up and tell him to kill his Uncle. In this raunchy and brutally funny take on Hamlet I’m exploring toxic masculinity, cycles of violence and the efficacy of tragedy for black people. Spoiler alert…I don’t really think Black folks need tragedy.
