Eric Holmes' monologue broken into 4 acts theatrically explores the views of a man who is both white and black. He explains how he would have handled the situation with Michael Brown and officer Darren Wilson, and how he would tell his story to Charlie Rose on PBS while saying he has never experienced any sort of police injustices, but still recognizes that things could be different with a few small detail changes.

REVIEWS 

“[A] stirring and often raw compilation. – Broad Street ReviewRead More

“These short monologues chronicle each author's encounters with the daily indecencies of racial profiling, stop-and-frisk, harassment, and casual racism inflicted by police, media, and society in general…each author delivers a brutally honest telling of their own experience.” – Philly.com, Read More 

Hands Up: 7 Playwrights; 7 Testaments makes the idea of "conversation" more than a hopeful shibboleth. With community involvement baked in, it responds directly to the world.” – Indy WeekRead More


Hands Up received its world premiere at Flashpoint Theatre Company at the University of the Arts on June 13, 2015, directed by Joanna Settle.
