Based on the award-winning novel by Walter Dean Myers, this captivating tale about the power of friendship depicts visceral scenes of inner-city struggle with sensitivity and wit. Street-smart and suspenseful, playful and profound, Darius & Twig is ultimately the story of two young men who must overcome obstacles by finding the best within themselves. 

We hope this production will bring you and your students on an exciting and challenging journey, leading to a productive conversation about the obstacles faced by young people in our modern world – and, more importantly, the ways that we can come together as friends and communities to overcome those obstacles.
 
The creators of this show have aimed to capture the true nature of Walter Dean Myers’ book, but in order to make the performance accessible for audiences that may react negatively to abrasive language on stage; the language has been toned down. The ultimate intention is to make sure that language will not detract or distract from the storytelling that is so important for young audiences to see depicted.
