KILLADELPHIA, a part of their Art of Justice Series, from April 29 – May 1, 2009 at 7pm at the Gerald W. Lynch Theater at John Jay College, 899 Tenth Avenue, NYC. Tickets are $15 and are available at www.ticketcentral.com or by phone at 212-279-4200.
Commissioned by the Mural Arts Project of Philadelphia and InterAct Theatre, KILLADELPHIA is the latest work from award-winning playwright and solo performer Sean Christopher Lewis
In the summer of 2008, the city of Philadelphia was in the midst of a murder epidemic on par with those of some third world countries. In KILLADELPHIA, Lewis takes an unflinching look at the causes of the increased crime rate and the effect on the community. Using hip hop and documentary theatre techniques, he interweaves the story of murdered teaching fellow Beau Zabel with interviews from inmates at Graterford Prison employed to beautify the city with more than 3,000 murals while serving out life sentences.
