    From Gumbo to Mumbo

    by Drew Anderson and Dwayne Lawson-Brown
    directed by Duane Richards II

    For all ages 11+  A dreadlock-rocking SouthEast DC b-boy and video game geek who crochets his way through “have and have (k)not” meets up with a bald and bearded New Orleanian science teacher turned rhyme speaker who uses comedy to contemplate his place in Trump’s America. Together, they conjure a dynamic cauldron of hip hop, poetry, and theatre to colorfully redefine masculinity, question social and political issues, and celebrate love and the search for home.

    Presented through support from Children’s Theatre Foundation of America and DC Commission on the Arts & Humanities, From Gumbo To Mumbo is a dynamic new work that uses styles of theatre, spoken word, and hip-hop to explore contemporary themes.
