Summary

Set in an otherworldly place, the supremely timely “Kill Move Paradise” follows four Black males—Ryan Swain (“Six Degrees of Separation,” “Black Nativity,” “Spring Awakening”) as Isa, Donnell E. Smith (Spike TV’s six-part series “Time: The Kalief Browder Story”) as Grif, Clinton Lowe (“Bamboo Bushwick,” “The Brothers Size” and Fuse TV’s “The Hustle”) as Daz, and Sidiki Fofana (“Most Dangerous Man In America,” “Children of Killers” and “The People”) as Tiny. Ripped prematurely from Earth by police brutality, vigilante “justice” and racist acts, they confront the reality of their pasts and scramble to make sense of their new world. Inspired by recent events, “Kill Move Paradise” is an expressionistic buzz saw through the contemporary myth that “all lives matter,” a portrait of the slain, not as degenerates deserving death but as heroes demanding we see them for the glorious beings they are. The world premiere production is the New York City debut of writer James Ijames, a Whiting Award winner. Saheem Ali (“Nollywood,” “The Booty Call,” and “The Erlkings”) will direct. Scenic design is by Maruti Evans, lighting design by Alan Edwards, sound design by Palmer Hefferan and costume design by Ntokozo Fuzunina Kunene. Darrell Moultrie will serve as movement coach. Christina Franklin is production stage manager. The provocative production closes the historic theater’s 48th season, “In Pursuit of Black Joy,” and runs from May 31 through June 25.
