The genre-bending A CASE FOR BLACK GIRLS SETTING CENTRAL PARK ON FIRE is a poetic hero’s journey that follows a brilliant pre-teen speeding from Brooklyn to Central Park as she processes her own pain while shouldering the weight of a world burdened by collective trauma. Aided in her journey by a rottweiler, Nat Turner and an alley-dwelling oracle, she questions what she’s running from, and what she’s running toward. In the end, the audience is invited to decipher the layers and meaning and draw connections to their own experiences.
