Show graphic for I.D.Shortly after beginning her Junior year, Jessica began brush-up rehearsals for a new play written by Nsangou Njiham, called I.D (directed by Steve Broadnax). This was Jessica’s first show as PSM at Penn State! I.D. was written specifically for the 3rd year M.F.A. candidate actors at Penn State. The actors had travelled to South Africa to tour the piece just a few weeks before it was remounted at Penn State as a main stage production. In October, the actors, as well as Jessica, were on the road again, this time to Pittsburgh, to share this story with other communities around Pennsylvania. The goal of this piece is to open up the conversation about race and identity. Check out THIS ARTICLE to read more about this unique and inspiring hip-hop theatre piece.
