Too Heavy for Your Pocket tells the story of Tennessee-born Holder as he takes us back to Nashville in the summer of 1961. The Freedom Riders are embarking on a courageous journey into the Deep South. When 20-year-old Bowzie Brandon gives up a life-changing college scholarship to join the movement, he’ll have to convince his loved ones—and himself—that shaping his country’s future might be worth jeopardizing his own.

Written by Jiréh Breon Holder, the production is directed by Margot Bordelon, with set design by Reid Thompson, costume design by Valérie Thérèse Bart, lighting design by Jiyoun Chang, sound design by Ian Scot. The cast features Eboni Flowers (Evelyn Brandon), Hampton Fluker (Tony Carter), Brandon Gill (Bowzie Brandon) and Nneka Okafor (Sally-Mae Carter).

This production is part of the Roundabout Underground series and is presented at the Black Box Theatre in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre (111 West 46th Street).  All tickets are $25.
