An Official Selection of the BLACK VOICES FESTIVAL live-streaming from the Whitefire Theatre, this multimedia, multiple character solo show centers around an aspiring young performer named Petal as she takes on the role of caregiver after her mother’s diagnosis with a mental illness.
Petal’s life is abruptly interrupted yet again when her neighborhood becomes gentrified and Petal and her mother have to leave their family home.
The circumstances, battles and situations Petal endures are a rites of passage to understanding life.
