Los Angeles | Mashing up spoken word, comedy and Hip-Hop, Sekou Andrews and Steve Connell deliver hyper-kinetic performances in this fresh new satire that examines the current American cultural landscape as it appears to a young white man and a young black man. Nominated for three Helen Hayes Awards, The Word Begins follows the journey of two men as they explore race, faith and morality in America—from the inner cities to the heartland. Throughout their compelling journey, Sekou and Steve move through a chaotic landscape as they attempt to come to terms with the realities of this American moment.
These performances are part of RADAR L.A. an international festival of contemporary theater presented by REDCAT in collaboration with Center Theatre Group and The Public Theater’s Under the Radar Festival. For more information, visit www.radarla.org.
