Best enjoyed by Everyone Ages 9 and Up

Uprooted from his family,
surrounded by the unfamiliar,
Lonnie couldn’t feel more alone.

But this year, his class is learning to write poetry.

Lonnie’s verses take him
from his foster home
to the classroom,
into the streets,
and back to a time when
his family was all together.

As Lonnie finds his voice,
you’ll discover how poetry can bring you
closer to others and yourself.

 

Written and adapted for the stage by Jacqueline Woodson
Directed by Talvin Wilks

Talvin Wilks

Locomotion is a very important work in our current era of more diverse storytelling. The opportunity to see a young Black male’s journey as a universal story of overcoming hardships and the challenges of adolescence is vital and revelatory. That CTC is making a commitment to diversifying the canon of young protagonists is an important and vibrant investment, not only for youths of color to see themselves and their experiences on stage, but for all youth to begin to broaden their understanding of universality, the act of seeing oneself through the lives of others. This opportunity is a great gift for our new era of awareness, and Jacqueline Woodson has created a story for everyone, a story that I am very excited to realize on stage.”
