Play Description:
Sam, the legendary, undisputed, greatest emcee in Rockford, IL, plans to rest on his laurels all winter, but his closest mentees and their outsized dreams challenge him to a battle he can’t win. A story that explores the politics of place, the unspoken expectations of friendship, and what happens when we choose to stand our ground on shifting sands.
