Real Life: An Original Hip-Hopera

Written and Directed by Joel P.E. King

Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe is pleased to present the touring production, Real Life, which was written and directed — and for this run, stars — occasional WBTT artist Joel P. E. King. Real Life, a two-act "hip-hopera" with sizzling song and dance, has been described as Rent meets In the Heights; it's a transformational story that explores the attitudes of urban living. The main character, Ray, has a test of faith as he is forced to choose his morality over a sensationalized street nature that may lead to his demise.
