Overview

it's not a trip it's a journey
By Charly Evon Simpson
Directed by Nicole A. Watson
APR 5 – MAY 8, 2022 | World Premiere

June needs a journey. Like, now. So, she convinces her friends to ditch New York City for an impromptu road trip to the Grand Canyon. As the four wildly different friends travel through the wondrous and not-so-wondrous sights of the United States, they must come together to contend with being Black, femme, and American…all at the same time. An intimate play with vast ambitions, it’s not a trip it’s a journey is about road trips, friendships, and finding the difference between surviving and thriving. (Part of the National Capital New Play Festival)

**IMPORTANT NOTE: Patrons must show proof of COVID-19 vaccination upon entry and wear masks while attending performances at our theatre, with limited exceptions. Click here for full details.**
