Death is the Enemy – Word Warriors Ensemble
November 8 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
DEATH IS THE ENEMY tells the story of a community overrun by gang violence. Though Trentyn and Dre are from opposite gangs, they have one thing in common – they are despised by the neighborhood Elders who watch their every move, desperate to keep their community safe. The Elders believe that justice means locking up the perpetrator and throwing away the key, even as their Reverend calls for mercy. When Dre’s older brother Jermaine returns home from prison, Dre and his mother are overjoyed. But on the street, tensions ignite, putting loved ones in the crossfire.
