Please join the Hyde Park Art Center as we welcome MPAACT for an intimate reading of Shepsu Aakhu’s new play Feral that addresses the Black Lives Matter movement.
The word FERAL has been tagged on buildings across the city. FX (Francis Xavier), is behind this politically motivated campaign. He is young Black and full to bursting with ideas about himself and the world around him. On a warm night in late July, FX and the local police share a moment of violence. The city and country respond…but what about FX, his family, friends, and the complex ideas that he hoped to communicate? In the national conversation “Black Lives Matter,” FERAL looks at youth, idealism, and desperation. It all starts with a word spray painted on a wall.
