- Multiple DatesThu, Feb 16The Lynn Theater (Brightpoint College)Atlas The Hill Side Chronicles arrives! Come join us this February at Bright Point Community College to watch the premier of the brand new play written by Joshua D. Harris! Be ready to laugh, cry, and snap along to this show filled with witty one-liners, jazz music, and deeply passionate poetry.
WHAT IS THE HILLSIDE CHRONICLES?
To be or not to be, What does it cost to be educated in America? The Hill Side Chronicles follows the everyday lives of black students looking to achieve higher education at one of the most prestigious schools in the country. All they have to do is stay low and not draw too much attention to themselves. Easier said than done! Does Civil rights and freedom of speech mean sacrificing individual identity and sacred traditions that come with being different? What does it mean to be equal in a world that was never designed for people that look like you to read?
WHO IS JOSHUA D. HARRIS?
Nicknamed the “Internet’s Busiest Boyfriend” Joshua has been performing melodic hip hop and RnB under the alias Dai Dream and has amassed a core following in Richmond’s underground music scene. Before music however his heart has always belonged to the theater; writing and performing in leading and supporting roles during his time as a theater major at John Tyler Community College (now known as Bright Point Community College). His hope is that he can use theater as a way to shine light on conversations such as racism, mental health, and humanity.
