George Street Playhouse's new production of Jiréh Breon Holder's Too Heavy for Your Pocket opens tonight, Friday, April 26, after having begun performances on April 23. The production will run through May 19.
In the play, "Tennessee-born Holder takes us back to Nashville in the summer of 1961. The Freedom Riders are embarking on a courageous journey into the Deep South. When 20-year-old Bowzie Brandon gives up a life-changing college scholarship to join the movement, he'll have to convince his loved ones — and himself — that shaping his country's future might be worth jeopardizing his own."
L.A. Williams directs a cast that includes Joniece Abbott-Pratt, Felicia Boswell, Donnell E. Smith, and Landon G. Woodson.
