Flight by Branch Street Productions
About this Show
In Flight our three glamorous flight attendants guide the audience through a series of stories that highlight a conflicted reconciliation between cultural past and modern identity. The play’s vignettes and poetry conjure George C. Wolfe’s The Colored Museum and Ntozake Shange’s for colored girls who have considered suicide / when the rainbow is enuf but finds its own voice through the collaboration of its young writer-performers.
