Midwest Premiere

By Tearrance Arvelle Chisholm

Directed by Lili-Anne Brown


November 5 – December 21, 2019 | Broadway Armory Park, 5917 N. Broadway


Dorian Belle is a big deal. He’s a Canadian pop sweetheart, and he’s ready to be taken seriously. So his people hire his favorite hip-hop artists—Black and Alexand, the ‘bad boy’ rappers of Petty Young Goons—to help him toughen up his image. They’re black, he’s white. They’re from Chicago, he’s from Canada. It’s all on reality TV. What could go wrong?

On a snowy day after Christmas, three New Jersey animal shelter employees hold down the fort. With the inclement weather comes a lull in the everyday bustle of the shelter, and the group's interactions soon expand to fill the space. This play is about animals, the humans who disappoint them, and the unexpected individuals who try to make things right.
