The C.A. Lyons Project

On the Hertz Stage

February 13, 2015 to March 8, 2015

A world premiere and the winner of the 2015 Alliance/Kendeda National Graduate Playwriting Competition

Ages 16+

World Premiere Kendeda Winner

When Lyons can no longer hide his sexuality or illness, his fledgling dance company is threatened, and the women who love him must come together to decide the best way to carry on his legacy. 

The 80’s. Black was in. They invented it. The founder of one of the city’s most important African-American dance companies is dying of AIDS, and the three lead dancers must find the strength and individual creative push to keep the company going without their charismatic leader. These are the Three Graces of the 20th Century: Chaos Unit, a tattooed hip hop phenom; Bethlehem Dunning, a ballerina raised by a deaf mother; and Amandla Sister Afrika, who seems to be in a continuous state of rebellion. A unique theatrical event where dance and theatre mingle throughout by a writer of amazing talent, this is the 11th winner of the Alliance’s prestigious Alliance/Kendeda National Graduate Playwright Competition.
