The Possibility Project is proud to present WORD TO THE WISE, an original musical drama written and performed by a diverse group of NYC youth. Since the fall, the young people in our After-School Program have gathered twice weekly after school each week to explore the most serious issues they face in their lives and learn the skills of the performing arts to bring expression to their ideas for change around them. Soon, all of their hard work will be put on stage at The Irondale Center in Brooklyn.
About the Show:
In a city filled with millions of people, it’s easy to lose yourself – and lost is exactly how Tim feels. He and his mother have fallen on hard times and are living in a homeless shelter. Fed up with the way his life is unfolding, Tim heads for his favorite place in the world, the library. As he delves into book after book after school each day, he reflects upon his situation, the conditions of his friends' lives, and the state of the city around him. Each book brings more questions. What makes the world so destructive? Are violence, pain, abuse, and oppression inevitable? Is human nature fixed and unchanging?Shocked and disappointed by what he discovers, Tim struggles to answer the most important question of all... why?
