A World Premiere Production

HOW TO BREAK
A New Musical

ISSAQUAH MAR 29 – APR 30, 2023 | EVERETT MAY 5 – MAY 28, 2023

Book and Lyrics by Aaron Jafferis
Music by Jacinth Greywoode, Rebecca Hart, and Yako 440
Conceived by the Mixing Texts Collective

An electrifyingly innovative world premiere production of a new work developed in part by Village Theatre! Featuring a dynamic kaleidoscope of music, poetry, breakdancing, and beatboxing, HOW TO BREAK is an inspiring story that follows two hospitalized teenage hip-hop dancers, their nurses, and doctors as they navigate their adolescence in the confines of a hospital room, finding ways to love and learn amidst IV bags and chemotherapy. Part commentary on the American health care system, part moving autobiography, and part profound journey through the joy and pain of growing up, HOW TO BREAK reveals just how resilient the human spirit is in the face of change and transformation.

The hip-hop play HOW TO BREAK was originally produced by HERE and the Hip-Hop Theater Festival (HI-Arts) at HERE in New York City, in association with Collective Consciousness Theatre
