I was thrilled to have playwright, producer, humanitarian, and LBGT advocate Tre Floyd (@tre_floyd3) join me in studio for the latest edition of IMO. Tre shared this summary of his newest stage drama “Before Black Lives Matter”, scheduled to begin Feb 2020:
“In a world where to some Black Lives Matter is a movement and to others Black Lives Matter is nothing more than a simple hashtag, Daniel is a senior in high school whose friend was recently killed by a police officer. To keep Daniel safe, his mother sends him to live with his aunt in the suburbs. Daniel quickly finds out that no matter where he lives, he is still a black male and there are certain things that he cannot do. This moving and informative drama is appropriate for all ages and races. Tickets available at trefloyd.com“.
I traveled to Memphis earlier this year to catch another of Tre’s most popular plays “Love Sex and Marriage” and was impressed with the acting, content, production quality, but above all, the compelling message. Tre Floyd weaves human elements such as social acceptance and discrimination into compelling storytelling that resonates across demographic and socio-economic divides. His unique perspective enables him to captivate audiences of all ages with an flourish of style and substance. With multiple plays in addition to a web series in production, Tre was a generous guest and shared his opinion on Colin Kaepernick, President Trump/Democratic challengers and community involvement among others.
