Special Sunday Performance

Darius & Twig

A Kennedy Center Commission

Based on the novel Darius & Twig by Walter Dean Myers
Adapted by Caleen Sinnette Jennings
Directed by Eleanor Holdridge

Sunday, January 8, 2017, 11 a.m.

On Harlem's 145th Street, best friends Darius and Twig dream of a world beyond the confines of their daily lives. Darius is a writer, whose latest story might be published in a magazine--if only he can keep his alter ego, a fierce falcon, in check. Twig is a runner, whose speed and endurance might bring him a scholarship--if only he can impress college scouts. But with Darius's mother barely scraping by, pressure from Twig's uncle to give up racing, and bullies Midnight and Tall Boy constantly on their case, these true-blue allies may not truly be free to use their gifts. Street-smart and suspenseful, playful and profound, Darius & Twig is the story of two young men who must overcome obstacles by finding the best within themselves.

Please note: The play includes choreographed stage violence and prop guns.

Best for ages 13 and up • Tickets are $7 Adults, $6 Seniors, and $4 Students and Children

“It is a production that was written for young audiences, but does not talk down to them. It presents its issues frankly and unapologetically, but it does not dwell in the unpleasantness of them… Darius & Twig doesn’t have a happy ending; rather, it has a hopeful ending, which I would argue is the more real, and ultimately more satisfying, ending.”
