SYNOPSIS: In the Brownsville neighborhood of Brooklyn, a life with infinite potential is tragically cut short. That is where the story both begins and ends. As time shifts gracefully between past and present we meet Tray, his 9-year-old sister Devine, the grandmother who’s raising them, and get introduced to the rest of Tray’s world – a world he’ll leave far too soon.  

Kimber Lee’s lyrical, vivid, and rhythmic new script is a poignant social drama of love and resilience that is both timely and illuminating.

"Uncompromising in its examination of grief and big-hearted in its belief in forgiveness, brownsville song sings with the rhythms of an often-misrepresented community, following in the footsteps of Lorraine Hansberry and August Wilson." - Theatre Mania
