Treat yourself to an evening that you won’t forget!
Broke-ology tells the story of a small African-American family in Kansas City. The King family has weathered life’s hardships, surviving with their love for each other intact. William King still resides in the house in which his two sons grew up. He’s alone, but he maintains his allegiance with his deceased wife in his own way. When the brothers, who are now from two different walks of life, are called home to take care of William, who has been stricken with Multiple Sclerosis, they find themselves strangely at odds. The play explores the dynamics of an average African American who finds themselves at the hands of hardships. Jackson’s characters have to come to the place where they are struggling with “duties vs. dreams”; a hardship in today’s economy with which many people struggle. Can poverty break a family apart? Should it be able to? (Some mature language)
“[Broke-ology]. It is a complex new science that examines two things. One, being broke. Two,staying alive despite your brokeness.” –Ennis (Broke-ology)
