Smooth Criminal is a new work-in-progress by hip-hop playwright Aaron Jafferis telling the story of a nerdy New Haven kid desperate to liberate his people – as soon as he can figure out who they are. After spending years talking sh*t about New Haven’s privileged white males, the kid investigates whether he may, in fact, be one of them! Based on the playwright’s almost-entirely-true-but-don’t-fact-check-with-his-parents life story, Smooth Criminal bumps and grinds the Elm City’s race and class issues with Jafferis’s own. Directed by Will MacAdams. Audience members are invited to stay after the show for interactive workshops connecting personal stories with the themes of the play.
This workshop is sponsored by the Community Foundation of Greater New Haven.
