Nathan Yungerberg's monologue tells of his experience going to a community discussion about Ferguson and his relation to identity as a black man being raised by white parents. Dismissal of feelings and how upbringing can change perspective fill this piece with sincerity and truth about the multititude of perspectives of the black population.

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.
