Rockfish is a piece was inspired by rockfish dinners, aunties who aren’t really your auntie, and the strange circumstances under which the playwright’s grandmother’s belongings were replaced with rocks.

Lost Sons
by Sydney Lemelin

This hip-hop theater piece explores the impact of mass incarceration in the black community. The effects of an imprisoned father ripple throughout the entire family and community, and the play highlights the sharp differences in families with and without a father figure around. It also demonstrates differences in how white men and black men are sentenced.
