When Czar and April buy a home in a black neighborhood on Chicago’s West Side, they find community with Hoody and Dee, who live next door. But can these two these families stay connected without destroying themselves and each other? It’s crazy, it’s whack. And everybody’s in it, from the skittish best friends from the suburbs, to the militant brother/a barista at Starbucks, and the wild child street kid who can’t keep his pants up or his stash on the DL. It’s a banging new world…of $7 coffee and $6 cheese snacks. Cardio Boot Camps and hand-me-downs. Jacked up taxes and gang tags. It’s the last stand of neighborhood, turf, tradition. It’s Broken Fences, a hilarious, scorching new play about friendship, fear…and all the other possibilities. Produced by Ballybeg, the company behind last year's hit Empanada for a Dream.
Alex Levy directs a cast of eight including Brian Carter*, Krissy Shields*, Clinton Lowe*, Emilio Aquino*, Erika Rose*, Lori Funk*, Scott Aiello, and Benjamin Foronda. *Member, Actors' Equity Association. AEA Showcase.
