Adapted from the extraordinary life of slam poet, playwright and speaker Lemon Andersen, County of Kings takes audiences on an astonishing journey of self-discovery, touching on young love, the birth of hip hop, slinging crack, ballet, stealing car parts, prison, and poetry. This story is a tough, yet poignant biographical account of a good kid growing up in an unforgiving environment. Lemon, whose parents met at a methadone clinic and died from AIDS, served two prison sentences before he was 21 and won a Tony Award before he turned 30. Weaving hard-edged drama with urban poetry, County of Kings is a coming-of-age story told with profound honesty, compassion and humor. Tickets start at $29, available online at Zeiterion.org, by phone at 508-994-2900 or in person at The Z Box Office!
