HOW WE GOT ON

By IDRIS GOODWIN
Directed by Paige Hernandez

OCTOBER 30-NOVEMBER 22, 2014

REGIONAL  PREMIERE

Set to the music of the late 80's rap scene,How We Got On is a coming-of-age story about three suburban kids, Hank, Julian, and Luann and how they navigate tumultuous family relationships, cultural isolation, and the search for authenticity. A sultry DJ re-mixes their lives as they use music to discover and express themselves in places words fail. 

How We Got On premiered at Actors Theatre of Louisville in the 2012 Humana Festival. Idris Goodwin, playwright, essayist, and spoken word artist, uses his cross-discipline talent to tell this contemporary ode to the roots of rap.
