May 15-June 1 EXTENDED THROUGH JUNE 8!
Hector, a streetwise troublemaker and runaway from a Trenton detention center, finds shelter in a barn owned by Ty and Georgiane Fletcher, a black couple living on a farm in rural New Jersey. Ty, a former classics teacher, offers sanctuary on one condition: Hector must learn to read.
Words from Homer’s The Iliad take their place next to urban rap lyrics as the two match wits in a struggle for Hector's survival.
Winner of the NAACP Award for Best Play of 1987, this production has been revised by the playwright.
