Written and performed by Brooklyn activist, educator and performing artist Bryonn Bain and directed by Mei Ann Teo, Lyrics From Lockdown weaves the voices of over 40 characters. This multimedia production uses a live band and video DJ, fusing hip hop, theater, spoken word, rhythm and blues, calypso and classical music, to tell the unbelievably true story that followed an unbelievable case of racial profiling, mistaken identity and wrongful incarceration.
