A World Premiere by John ADEkoje
Directed by Lois Roach
March 9 – March 31, 2007
@ the Plaza Theatre
The Boston Center for the Arts
Company One presents this highly anticipated world-premiere by award-winning Boston playwright, John ADEkoje. Directed by EMMY Award-winner Lois Roach, SIX ROUNDS / SIX LESSONS is a no-holds-barred exploration of truth, mortality and fatherhood. In a metaphysical boxing ring, we experience the story of Ace, a strong black male of sculpted body and mind. A father, son, brother and husband, Ace seeks redemption and enlightenment as a DJ cuts and scratches to the beat of his salvation. Playwright John ADEkoje’s self-described “tragicomic hip-hop concerto” weaves an unconventional tale of morals, love and the realities of the streets.
