Kill Move Paradise

Event description

  • Arts and entertainment
  • Open to the public
"Kill Move Paradise," by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright James Ijames, tells the story of four black men abruptly ripped out of their worlds and thrown into a peculiar waiting room. As they attempt to make sense of where they are and where they’re going, Isa, Daz, Grif and Tiny are forced to confront the reality of their past and how they arrived in this unearthly place. Inspired by the ever-growing list of slain Black men and women, "Kill Move Paradise" illustrates the potential for collective transformation and radical acts of joy.
