This one-man show explores issues of race, class, and identity. Through the life stories of his characters, Big Man, Joshua Thomas, Northington III, Darrion, and Marcy, Gillett gives his audience insight on what it is like to be a young Black adult. Using a series of vignettes, the play looks at how each character feels to be invisible and without voice.
