THE WIND AND THE BREEZE
By Nathan Alan Davis
Directed by Rob Lutfy
May 16 - Jun 10, 2018
Low-priced Previews May 16 - 19, 2018
Sam, the legendary, undisputed, greatest emcee in Rockford, IL, plans to rest on his laurels all winter and, if possible, stake out an early spot to watch the Independence Day fireworks -but his closest mentees and their outsized dreams challenge him to a battle he can't win. The Wind and the Breeze explores the politics of place, the unspoken expectations of friendship and what happens when we choose to stand our ground on shifting sands.
"Because ultimately what makes it soar is Davis' uniquely lyrical script, and its thematic veracity and original authorial voice floats us past fleeting new-play issues." - LA Times
"I wish that other playwrights...could be as skillful as Nathan Alan Davis." - DC Theatre Scene
