About this show

In Too Heavy for Your Pocket, Tennessee-born playwright Jiréh Breon Holder takes audiences 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 has to convince his loved ones — and himself — that shaping his country's future might be worth jeopardizing his own.
