In Spiritrials, addiction, religion and the law intersect in a court-ordered drug rehabilitation program. A timely exploration of the American criminal justice system, this multidimensional play blurs the line between hip-hop and dramatic performance. Writer/performer Dahlak Brathwaite weaves through the autobiographical and the fictional, music and monologue, to examine his place in what appears to be a cultural rite of passage as a young Black male. Written and performed by Dahlak Brathwaite, scored by Brathwaite and Dion Decibels, directed by Marc Bamuthi Joseph and Sean San Jose.
