Robert O'Hara (Bootycandy) will direct the MCC Theater New York premiere of BLKS by Aziza Barnes. The production will run April 18, 2019-May 26, 2019, in the Newman Mills Theater, part of MCC Theater's new Hell's Kitchen home opening next season.
MCC Theater describes the play as follows: "BLKS introduces us to Octavia, Imani, and June – three twentysomethings in New York City hunting for intimacy and purpose in a city that doesn't seem to care. They drink a lot. They smoke a lot. They try to have sex. A lot. When they need each other the most, the women rally to 'resurrect their fly' in a day full of humorous and painful attempts to be heard through the noise that surrounds them."
Full casting will be announced at a later date.
