BEAT By Lori Roper
Directed By Lori Roper, Starring Seth Newfeld*
BEAT, a conscious raising solo play, centers around Richard Clinton, a retired, white, Newark detective, as he prepares for the funeral of his fallen partner. Unexpected revelations arise as he explores the carelessness and lies, unchecked passion and compromising commitments that have alternately thrilled and haunted his life. Meanwhile, an incendiary atmosphere looms while a Black Lives Matter protest positioned directly in the path of the funeral procession mounts. Calamity ensues and Richard must stake his life on one brutal, deeply unfair decision.
