"BLKS" By Aziza Barnes - SpeakEasy Stage Company (Boston, MA.)

SpeakEasy Stage Company of Boston



BLKS By Aziza Barnes

Directed by Tonasia Jones  

New England Premiere! 


Oct. 29 – Nov. 20, 2021 


Roberts Studio Theatre   

Best Play – 2020 Inaugural Antonyo Award, presented by Broadway Black!  

“Raw, blistering, hilarious, and engaging” (Chicago Sun-Times), BLKS follows three twenty-something black women trying to find intimacy and purpose in a city that doesn’t seem to care about them.  

In the wake of a serious health scare, Octavia recruits her besties June and Imani to join her for one last epic night on the town. 

But as the evening unfolds, a string of increasingly wild adventures tests their friendship in this raucous comedy of misbehavior that explores the joy and anguish of growing up and out.
