ABOUT THE SHOW

Electrifying readers across the country since its publication last year, Angie Thomas’s smash hit Young Adult novel The Hate U Give tackles race, police violence, and media with verve and wit. At this show, performers of many ages and backgrounds will offer a variety of artistic responses to this timely work.

Honored with a slot on the 2017 National Book Award Longlist in the category of Young People’s Literature, The Hate U Give tells the story of 16-year-old Starr Carter, the sole witness to a police shooting involving an unarmed friend. Carter finds herself torn between two vastly different worlds: the poverty-stricken neighborhood she has grown up in and the upper-crust suburban prep school she attends.
