In The Spirit – For Real
Acclaimed solo performer Peggy Pettitt returns to P.S. 122 starting this evening with In The Spirit – For Real.
In The Spirit – For Real is a powerful and compelling one-woman show. Due to the AIDS epidemic, a feisty older woman with ferocious stamina is left alone to raise her nephew, an urban youth, gifted but on the edge. Pettitt plays multiple characters in a heart-to-heart conversation between generations. Brilliantly written, infused with hip-hop and jazz selections, In The Spirit – For Real is a powerful coming of age story that bathes the wounds of generational separation with a prescription for hope.
Written &Performed by Peggy Pettitt, Directed by Remy Tissier, Jazz Music Composition &Coordination by Harry Mann, Lighting Design by Aimee Schneider, Costume Design by Pascaline Tissier, Rap Lyrics: Malone Block and I Love My Life by Jarrod Pettitt (Jay Pistols).
