Too Heavy for Your Pocket Drama/ Regional Premiere Written by Jiréh Breon Holder Previews: January 19, 20, 23OPENING NIGHT: January 25, 2019 Runs: January 25 - February 24, 2019 In rural Tennessee at the height of the Civil Rights Movement two young couples struggle to understand justice, love, and their own responsibilities. When Bowzie gets a scholarship to attend Fisk University, he has the opportunity to improve his family’s life. His education goes beyond the classroom, as he becomes a Freedom Rider and joins the fight against racism in the Deep South, leaving his obligations as a husband and friend behind. A beautifully written look at the personal cost and private struggles behind public events, Too Heavy for Your Pocket speaks powerfully about the bonds of friendship and what defines true family.
