18-year-old Ida lives in a public housing project where, as she transitions to adulthood, every day can be a struggle. After she watches the police beat up a fellow resident of the institutional high rises, she becomes friends with a young homeless man who sleeps on a nearby bench. As their unlikely friendship grows, will it strengthen her connection to home or drive her away in search of a new life? A powerful play about love, violence, community and justice on the line between poverty and true homelessness, BlackTop Sky runs at the Know Theatre of Cincinnati.
BlackTop Sky has adult language and mature themes.
