This true story begins when Brooklyn's own Nuyorican Grand Slam Poetry Champion Bryonn Bain ("60 Minutes," "The Village Voice," BET-J's "My Two Cents") is wrongly imprisoned in New York City - while studying law at Harvard. Weaving together the critical and comedic voice of his Caribbean immigrant family and a poet sentenced to Death Row at 17 years old, this dynamic solo performance takes no prisoners as Bain tackles America's unresolved contradiction with a virtuosic sense of humor and lyricism linking the storytelling tradition of the African diaspora and urban America.
