Po'Boys Kitchen premiers March 7th & 8th at the De Anza High School Theater.

The central character of “Po’Boys Kitchen” is a corner store restaurant named Po'Boys Kitchen, a black-owned business located in the heart of Richmond. The daily drama of life in Po'Boys includes the homeless, the prostitutes, the drug dealers, the crack addicts, as well as neighborhood families. Some come for Po'Boys' signature butter-me-up-cornbread and Big Mama’s southern lemonade; some stop in to talk trash, crack jokes, or gossip about daily news. Some, like Sabrina and Taylor, a young prostitute and a drug dealer, come seeking wisdom and redemption, a clean slate where they can re-write themselves. Will they find the courage to transform their futures or will the ghosts of their pasts pull them back? For most people, Po’Boys is more than a convenience store, but a place that saves lives.

The script of "Po’Boys Kitchen" will be published as a book with VOLUME Youth Poetry Project's Red Beard Press, a youth-run publishing press in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The book will be released the night of the play. Come support the voices of Richmond youth!
