Berkeley Repertory Theatre will conclude its season with another new play, created and performed by Dael Orlandersmith. Black n Blue Boys / Broken Men begins previews on the Thrust Stage on May 25, opens May 30, and runs through June 24.

This world premiere introduces audiences to children and adults forging identities in families fractured by abuse. Each relates a story that transforms these challenges into a celebration of our capacity to survive. Orlandersmith created this show after becoming a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize with Yellowman. Obie Award-winner Chay Yew directs.

The design team of Black n Blue Boys / Broken Men includes Daniel Ostling (scenic design), Anita Yavich (costume design), Ben Stanton (lighting design), and Mikhail Fiksel (sound design).
