Stan, a.k.a. “Definition” is a rising freestyle MC – or at least he was, until his life’s passion lost out to his meth habit. Now on the road to recovery and preparing for a come-back show, Stan confronts his demons and recounts his harrowing journey through the wild highs and deep lows of addiction. Using spoken word and hip hop, playwright Michael P. Northey and hip hop artists Kyprios and Stylust have created a pulse-pounding, full-sensory experience that deals in the brutal realities of addiction and drug culture, and the redemption that can lie in recovery.
Following a multi-year, international tour that included runs at The Duke Theatre on 42nd Street in New York City, and at the historic Sydney Opera House in Australia, this Green Thumb hit returns with updated content in light of the current fentanyl and opioid crises. As addiction weaves its way through communities across North America, this powerful piece is more timely than ever.
