WACO Theater Center and Watts Village Theater Company present the world premier of Marty and the Hands that Could by Josh Wilder, directed by Larry Powell.
Released from prison on the eve of his 25th birthday, Marty returns home to his family, equipped with a handwritten manuscript and big dreams to turn his life around. But his cousin Junior has also come home with problems of his own, setting them on a collision course as they struggle to break free of the curse that has haunted their family for generations. Can Marty put his hands to good use, or is his fate already written?
April 28 - May 21 at Watts Labor Community Action Committee
Featured Artists: Aaron Shaw, Akilah Walker, Bernadette Speakes, Camden Coley, Joshua R. Lamont, Joy DeMichelle, Matthew Elam, Montae Russell
