Best Play – 2020 Inaugural Antonyo Award, presented by Broadway Black!  “Raw, blistering, hilarious, and engaging” (Chicago Sun-Times), BLKS follows three twenty-something Black women trying to find intimacy and purpose in a city that doesn’t seem to care about them.  In the wake of a serious health scare, Octavia recruits her besties June and Imani to join her for one last epic night on the town. But as the evening unfolds, a string of increasingly wild adventures tests their friendship in this raucous comedy of misbehavior that explores the joy and anguish of growing up and out.
