About the Play


PNC presents NO. 6 
by T.J. Young
directed by Dwandra Nickole Lampkin
family, racial tensions, & healing

As city-wide riots approach their neighborhood, a Black family shelters in their apartment above the small dry-cleaning business they own. When they find themselves protecting an intoxicated White man from the street, tensions inside the apartment amplify and secrets are revealed. Inspired by the killing of a young Black man by Cincinnati police in 2001, the play bears witness to the ongoing violence against Black citizens while reaching for the possibility of hope.

Part of IRT's INclusion Series: Celebrating Diverse Storytelling
