About this show

Too Heavy for Your Pocket 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. Too Heavy for Your Pocket is written by Tennessee-born playwright Jiréh Breon Holder, who is currently the Playwriting Fellow of the Department of Theater and Creative Writing at Emory University.
