A world premiere play by poet Aziza Barnes, we follow the day in a life of four black women living in New York City. Featuring Steppenwolf newcomer Namir Smallwood, it's set to be directed by Nataki Garrett, who was recently named American Theatre Magazine's "One to Watch". When Octavia has the morning from hell that involves breaking up with her girlfriend and compounded by a cancer scare, she finds herself in need of her best friends for one last hurrah. What transpires is a riotous afternoon in the Big Apple, and a chance to see the world through all four women's eyes.
Born in Los Angeles and now a resident of Mississippi, Barnes has made a name for herself as a poet of note, and one of the country's most exciting new voices. With works such as "me Aunt Jemima and the nailgun", which won the 2012 Button Poetry Prize, BLKS marks her debut as a playwright during the 2017/18 season.
Opening night: 7 December 2017
