BLKS at Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company

After a bad health scare, Octavia decides to put off her troubles and blow off some serious steam with her friends June and Imani. Will one last epic night on the town—a true test of their friendship full of outrageous, absurd encounters—lead to epiphany or disaster?

BLKS is a “raw, blistering, hilarious, and engaging” (Chicago Sun-Times) new work that responds to a number of cultural icons, from Lena Dunham’s Girls to Seinfeld to August Wilson. Poet and playwright Aziza Barnes’ new play celebrates queerness and sisterhood as three twentysomething black women wrestle with love, uncomfortable truths, and the anguish of adulting in New York City.

Directed by Woolly company member Nataki Garrett
Featuring Woolly company member Shannon Dorsey
