About the Event


Genre: Theatre

It’s Homecoming and Senior year for Jess and Hakim, MAP High School’s hottest couple. Jess is a star athlete and honor student and Hakim is an attractive kid from a great family, but unsure of where he is going. Which is the complete opposite of Jess, who has known since she was 3 that she would be a veterinarian. She’s focused on what next and Hakim is ready for right now. Things get crazy when you through in their friends and High School drama. Jess’ friend Erica helps keep her grounded, while living her best life at the same time. And then there’s Jess’ childhood friend, Will, who’s like a brother, but secretly wishes it were more. Things kick off, as school begins. Jess and Hakim are in front of their lockers arguing about Homecoming, when Head Cheerleader, Taylor overhears this and decides to take Jess’ place by “consoling” Hakim after their fight. Will catches them, but doesn’t say anything. He does confide in his homeboy, Pop about what he saw and his feelings, as he’s conflicted on should he tell Jess or not. Should he confess to her how he feels? Meanwhile, Erica is telling Jess she really needs to focus on her athletic training and studies so she can get the scholarships she needs for college. But Erica drops the tea, she wants to ask Will to Homecoming and asks for Jess’ help. The bell rings and class begins, but not really. All of drama comes spilling out, as Mr. Payne is trying to stay on his lesson plan. He manages to the get settled, right before the bell rings and before the Pep Rally begins. As the students make their way the the auditorium, gunfire erupts and sends the school into panic and chaos, as the “school shooter” drill code “Miles Davis Is In The Building” is announced. MAP High students, parent and faculty are forever changed from this occurrence. They struggle to return to normalcy. And even worse, because they are in an urban neighborhood, their trauma is ignored because of the color of their skin and their zip code.
