BEST FOR EVERYONE AGES 7 AND UP
Friendships challenged, a world changed, and two young people struggling to make sense of it together.
Josh and Emma are best friends and neighbors. They love jumping on the trampoline and joking with Emma’s uncle Manny. But when a Black man is killed by a police officer, Emma and Josh have questions about what happened, and why. Layered with compassion and humor, this show invites you to walk alongside Josh, Emma, and their families as they confront uncertainty within their town and amongst themselves.
