Pipe Dreams Studio Theatre concludes a successful season with the world premier of Paul Shoulberg's Cracker, directed by Assistant Professor, Tom Robson.
--In a suburb known for its ever-increasing
gang violence, Les Colton and his group of “white cracker” friends will
do anything to fit in. Mothered by an alcoholic, Les’s only solitude is
found in his African-American friend and artist, Blue. Les has his
world soon thrown into chaos when his brother, Ray, is released from
jail returning with a vengeance. A gripping tale of discovery, Cracker
explores issues of race, violence, stereotyping, love, and questions how
hard would you fight for what you believe in.
Cracker runs through April 28th at Pipe Dreams Studio Theatre in Decatur. For more information, visit the Pipe Dreams website at www.pdtheatre.com
