Company One presents…
By Branden Jacobs - Jenkins
Directed by Summer L. Williams
Featuring Johnny Lee Davenport
- L.A. Weekly
“Shockingly subversive…thrillingly original…exciting new voice”
Have you seen the new neighbors? Richard Patterson is not happy. The family of black actors that has moved in next door is rowdy, tacky, shameless, and uncouth. And they are not just invading his neighborhood—they’re infiltrating his family, his sanity, and his entirely postracial lifestyle. This wildly theatrical, explosive play on race marks the major debut of Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, member of NYC’s Public Theatre’s Emerging Writers Group. One of only a few theatres nationwide bold enough to produce this play, Company One is proud to present the Boston premiere.
NEIGHBORS, by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins. Directed by Summer L. Williams. Featuring Johnny Lee Davenport, Japonica Brown, Tory Bullock, Equiano Mosieri, Christine Power, Valerie Stephens, Lori Tishfield, and Jesse Tolbert.
