We’re proud to announce that Darren Anthony’s play, “Secrets Of A Black Boy”, will be making the transition from the Canadian stage to the US. The original theatrical production from Toronto will now be playing in Brooklyn, NY, as part of the New Voices in Theater 2012 Festival. The play runs from Friday, July 27 – Saturday, August 4, 2012.
Secrets of a Black Boy is a theatrical production that takes place in modern day Toronto, ON, Canada. A current and very edgy story about the secrets of 5 black men, Secrets of a Black Boy is set against the back drop of displaced poverty-stricken families in Regent Park. Five friends gather inside a community centre about to be torn down, to say good bye one last time to the place they all called home for so long. The friends reminisce about what the community centre means to them. The play is a forum for urgent commentary about both the disintegration of Regent Park ( a notorious low-income housing complex) and the lives of the young men most affected by it. Secrets of a Black Boy is a gritty, uncensored look at the lives of black men. No subject is taboo, from interracial dating, commitment phobia, gun violence, sexuality, drugs and love. Every stereotype of black men will be critically examined and explored, subsequently giving audiences a fresh, new and authentic experience!
