BLKS

BUY TICKETS

After a bad health scare in her nether regions, Octavia decides to put off her troubles and blow off some serious steam with her friends June and Imani. Will one last epic night on the town—a true test of their friendship full of outrageous, absurd encounters—lead to epiphany or disaster?

BLKS is a “raw, blistering, hilarious, and engaging” (Chicago Sun-Times) new work that responds to a number of cultural icons, from Lena Dunham’s Girls to Seinfeld to August Wilson. Poet and playwright Aziza Barnes’ new play paints a miraculous portrait of a day in the life of three twentysomething black women wrestling with love, uncomfortable truths, and the anguish of adulting in New York City.
