A Kennedy Center world premiere commission based on the novel Darius & Twig by Walter Dean Myers. Part of Shea's On School Time series.

Recommended for grades 7+.

Can two friends break away from the city to live their dreams? On Harlem’s 145th Street, teenage 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. And Twig is a runner, whose speed and endurance might bring him a scholarship–if only he can impress college scouts at an upcoming meet. 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.

Based on the award-winning novel by Walter Dean Myers, this captivating tale about the power of friendship takes the late author’s “unerring eye for what’s real and meaningful in life” (Newsday) to depict visceral scenes of inner-city struggle with sensitivity and wit. Street-smart and suspenseful, playful and profound, Darius & Twig is ultimately the story of two young men who must overcome obstacles by finding the best within themselves.

Please note: This play includes choreographed stage violence and a prop gun.

Adapted by Caleen Sinnette Jennings.
Directed by Eleanor Holdridge.
