Black and Blue

The Greenhouse Theater Center
2257 N Lincoln Avenue Chicago

Davoe Sexton and Jayson Rabedeau patrol the notorious neighborhood on Chicago's long-neglected south-east side. The area is known to locals as "Terror Town." As veteran cops who "happen to be Black," these men must navigate the streets, the policies of policing and the deeply conflicted roles that they play in the lives of those that they are supposed to "serve and protect." Set in 2016, these officers find themselves at ground zero when long-suppressed evidence surfaces, illuminating an officer-involved shooting on the very streets that they patrol. Over the course of a single day, these officers must confront the most corrosive questions that face African-American officer. Are they Black? Are they Blue? Or are they a volatile mix of Black and Blue? This gripping, timely drama hits the Downstairs Studio stage at the Greenhouse Theater Center.

Chicago Reader - Highly Recommended

"...Like much of Aakhu's script, it's a rigorous, blistering spoken-word piece, far removed from cops talking on street corners. Trouble is, director Andrea J. Dymond treats everything as realistic dialogue, so little feels dramatically credible. But even with this disconnect, the surgical precision of Aakhu's successively more unsettling set pieces carries the evening."
