A reading of new works by playwright Kwame Stephens
What is manhood all about? Does it have to do with a physical state of being or behaviour? Is it something that can be learnt or are we born with “manhood”?
Playwright Kwame Stephens explores these and other questions in the following three one-act stage plays that will be read.
“Dance Again” is the story of John who is single at 40 years old. Everyone seems to think they know why he’s single.
“Pier 21 Cafe” is set in Nova Scotia where Mutuku is celebrating two years of being in a relationship with Yvonne. He however seems distracted.
“Kofi’s Lessons” is about the new student from Ghana to Toronto. There are certain things that he can only learn in life.
Kwame Stephens is a Toronto based playwright, poet and writer. Prior to having his first feature length play Man 2 Man produced from 2010 to 2012, Kwame’s work was published extensively in Canada and English speaking Africa. Kwame continues to write stage plays, poetry, short stories, novels and more.
