Part play, part poetry slam, Brown Face follows a group of college students as they navigate their identities in the competitive world of spoken word poetry.
This production contains flashing lights and sirens, images of police/ICE arrests and deportation, depictions of drug/alcohol use and a panic attack, and features tense situations and strong language centered around sensitive identity issues.
