by August Wilson
Directed by: Lou Bellamy
Just released from jail, Blues singer Floyd "Schoolboy" Barton is asked to sign a record deal after a song he recorded months before becomes an unexpected hit. After a year of trials and tribulations, Floyd is ready to right the past year's wrongs and return to Chicago with a new understanding of what's important in his life. Unfortunately his means of righting wrongs are inherently flawed.
This contemporary work written in 1995 by Pulitizer Prize winning playwright August Wilson, recurring theme is based in the blues music; it’s a search for our humanity, self-understanding and self-acceptance in the face of personal and societal ills. What you will you do when the Blues hits you?
