Downtown Dialogues: FLEX
FLEX by Candrice Jones
Directed by Tinashe Kajese-Bolden
PART OF THE HUMANA 2020 FESTIVAL OF NEW AMERICAN PLAYS
A powerful new play about swagger, determination and sticking together. It’s 1997 and the WNBA is changing the game. Every player on Plainnole’s Lady Train basketball team now dreams of going pro — but first, they’ll have to navigate the pressures of being young, black and female in rural Arkansas. Candice Jones’s adrenaline packed play about a high school basketball team explores the fierce strength of young black women in the South and what it means to be part of a team.
