Spiritrials says
A young African American man is stopped by the police without clear cause. Again and again and again. The 10th stop leads to entanglements with the courts, jail, and attorneys with potentially life-changing results. Dahlak Brathwaite’s incisive humor and poetic wisdom transforms this chilling personal story into a vivid theatrical event that intersects addiction, religion, and the law set in a government sponsored drug rehab program.

This multi-dimensional play layers character monologues, poetic verse, and musical arrangements from Brathwaite to create a theatrical piece that blurs the lines between hip-hop and dramatic performance.
