B.R.O.K.E.N code B.I.R.D switching
Berkshire Theatre Group (6 East St., Stockbridge, MA 01262)
Berkshire Theatre Group presents a world premiere play, B.R.O.K.E.N code B.I.R.D switching by Tara L. Wilson Noth, directed by Kimille Howard.
After unbearable loss, a grieving attorney takes a pro bono case representing a black teenager accused of murder. When an alluring stranger steps in to help, she is left questioning who she is and what she wants. While fighting for the young man’s innocence, she is forced to confront the devastating truth about marriage, race and the woman she has chosen to be.
B.R.O.K.E.N code B.I.R.D switching is a play about the choices we make and the unspoken lies we tell ourselves to make peace with those choices.
“I believe in the power of words. I believe they are the greatest strength this world has… I feel very fortunate that I could use my words to craft this story. It is a story of race and identity, of promise and purpose… but perhaps more importantly, it is the story of the potency of being seen. The universal need to be seen for who we are. When we truly see each other, we can begin an honest dialogue… I hope this play can succeed in beginning that conversation.” ~ Tara L. Wilson, Playwright
