The University of Kentucky Department of Theatre & Dance presents Black & 25 in America, written and performed by UK Theatre Alum Jeremy Gillett.
Written and performed by University of Kentucky Theatre Alum Class of 2016 Jeremy Gillett, this one-man play explores the experience of being a young, Black adult in today's America. Award-winning actor/playwright Gillett embodies multiple characters going through a diverse range of experiences from "Big Man" - the high school football star trying to escape a life of poverty and crime, to "Marcy" - a biracial woman who struggles to navigate two identities, and "Darron" - a closeted gay man from a deeply religious family. Before "Black-ish," "This Is Us," or "The Chi" - Gillett was developing his story as an undergraduate at UK and returns home to share his voice with the audiences that first inspired him.
This performance is in the Guignol Theatre of the UK Fine Arts Building, 465 Rose Street, Lexington.
