Show Description:

A biting, funny, hopeful requiem for Black lives. James Ijames’ award-winning play Kill Move Paradise tells the story of Isa, Daz, Grif and Tiny, four black men who find themselves stuck in a cosmic purgatory in the afterlife. While balancing the reality of their past and the uncertainty of their future, their souls try to find peace from senseless action and hope in the life they left behind. Gone but never forgotten, Kill Move Paradise illustrates the possibilities of collective transformation and radical acts of joy.
