We are super excited to share that Amanda Parris, the co-founder of The Ride or Die Project  has been invited into Cahoots Theatre’s Hot House Creators Unit to develop the script forOther Side of the Game! Woop! One step closer to Broadway! 😉
Here is a breakdown of the program from the Cahoots Website:

“The Hot House consists of 5 – 8 emerging to established artists/playwrights, with works in progress and proposals that reflect the mandate of the company. Over the course of the season, playwrights will develop their work under the guidance of Artistic Director Marjorie Chan. There is no application process to be part of the unit, acceptance into the unit is by invitation only and at the discretion of the Artistic Director.”

#TBT – GYC Presents Perspective on Violence with Amanda Parris

In 2012 the Grassroots Youth Collaborative invited me to share my thoughts on how issues of violence in the city of Toronto should be addressed as part of a series they were conducting.  They caught me at a particularly critical and challenging time in my journey and much of that energy comes through in my answers.  Shot by my broski Neil “Logik” Donaldson.
