Amani (Off-Broadway, Rattlestick Playwrights Theater, 2023) | Playbill



A co-production with National Black Theatre and Rattlestick Playwrights Theater


Amani grows up building a rocket ship with her father, who vows to make it to outer space: where his child can breathe easy, where there are no gangs to take his first love’s life, nor prisons to take Black boys’ best years. As Amani moves into adulthood, she seeks her voice and her own dreams. Will Amani make it to the moon?
