In the summer of 1961, the Freedom Riders are embarking on a courageous journey into the Deep South. When twenty-year-old Bowzie Brandon gives up a life-changing college scholarship to join the movement, he’ll have to convince his loved ones—and himself—that shaping his country’s future might be worth jeopardizing his own. Set during the height of the Civil Rights Movement, two couples must contemplate justice, love, and responsibility on their own terms.
“…illuminating and moving… Too Heavy for Your Pocket dramatizes questions of class difference within the black community that rarely get broached onstage.” —NY Times
