CityParks Theater presented by Time Warner - Rock, Paper, Scissors, three short plays written by Ben Snyder and directed by Kamilah Forbes, explores a relationship between the U.S. Army and the hip hop industry, teamed up to enlist young people who live in depressed areas into the military. Snyder says of this recruiting tactic, "They have a whole hip hop marketing ad campaign that includes driving Hummers, playing hip-hop music, holding freestyle contests, and giving away video games at historically black colleges." The show has intrigued sold-out audiences at Center Stage New York, P.S.122, New York Theater Workshop, and HBO's U.S. Comedy Arts Festival.
