by Donna-Michelle St. Bernard (TPM). An outspoken emcee finds that free speech comes with consequences. Previews from Apr 13-16, opens April 18 and runs to May 7, Tue-Sat 7:30 pm, mat Sat-Sun 2 pm. $17-$38, mat pwyc at the door.
This new long-form spoken word and rap show from playwright, freestyler and TPMs Emcee in Residence Donna-Michelle St. Bernard combines the story of imprisoned Tunisian rapper Weld El 15 with her own experiences dealing with police in Toronto as a Black artist, as well as stories told by deaf activist Tamyka Bullen who appears via pre-recorded projected video. St. Bernard punctuates these pieces with original raps about racist oppression by unjust authority, but some streamlining and a strong narrative frame are needed.
