“Come Back Up”

August 15, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - August 30, 2015 @ 8:00 pm

COME BACK UP is a fearless play, touching on sensitive and powerful topics. The focal character, Buddy, is an intellectually disabled black boy who wants to get help his sister transition from purgatory to heaven. She died 11 years ago, and as her spirit resurfaces more strongly, Buddy’s mother struggles to face the ghosts of her past, both physical and metaphorical. When Buddy is implicated in a tragic crime, his disability and race cloud public perceptions, and with the walls closing in, forgiveness starts to feel like a foreign word.
