This brave new play moves beyond the boundaries of convention to depict the casualties of a decaying urban landscape.

With an unsparing eye and kee insight, exciting young playwright Kia Corthron gives us a vivd portrait of life in a girl gang. Overcoming a legacy of abuse and neglect, Prix harnesses the skills necessary to survive. At 16, she is at the top of her game as the leader of a gang of African-American teenage girls; at 30, the game is finally over. As explosive as the fireworks of Prix's fantasy creations, Breath, Boom is a searing glimpse of young women on the edge.
