About

World premiere Kennedy Center commission

Sixty seconds. Seven floors. One elevator. Fifteen-year-old Will’s brother has just been shot, and Will is ready to follow “The Rules”: 1) “No Crying.” 2) “No Snitching.” 3) “Get Revenge.” But on the ride down, with his brother’s gun in his pocket, his plan is interrupted by a few visitors.

D.C.-area native Jason Reynolds's New York Times best-selling book comes to the stage in a compelling and timely production. Told entirely in free-form poetry, Long Way Down captures the potent minute Will contemplates retaliation. As mysterious guests appear at each floor, Will realizes there might be a bigger story to be told. He knows who he’s after. Or does he?

Most enjoyed by age 12 and up. All patrons, regardless of age, must have a ticket.

After all performances, special guest experts will engage audiences in a conversation that unpacks the themes presented on stage.
