Pyramid Theatre Company: Too Heavy For Your Pocket

June 7 - 22, 2019 Stoner Theater

by Jireh Breon Holder

From the mind of Pyramid Theatre Company’s Founding Artistic Director Member and rising national playwright Jireh Breon Holder comes Too Heavy For Your Pocket. In the summer of 1961, the Freedom Riders are embarking on a courageous journey into the Deep South. When twenty-year-old Bowzie Brandon gives up a life-changing college scholarship to join the movement, he’ll have to convince his loved ones—and himself—that shaping his country’s future might be worth jeopardizing his own. The interactive direction from Producing Artistic Director Tiffany Johnson brings audiences right into the thick of the Civil Rights movement and provides lens to the Black experience in times injustice.
