C1's Take

I want to use the theatre as a venue to wrestle with our national sicknesses but also a place to nod heads in unison, as we collectively imagine towards liberation. HYPE MAN, this latest entry into my break beat plays series, exemplifies this desire.” – Idris Goodwin, playwright

C1's Take

Growing up in the inner city as a young Black man I felt like my dreams and my environment were at war … Writing this play helped me understand why people in my neighborhood gave up, and it helped me heal the wounds I accumulated in my pursuit of my own dreams. Josh Wilder
