How to move beyond global warfare and gang and
street violence is explored through the unlikely medium of RAP in THUGUN AND
NATASHA, a drama with rap, for family audiences. The play is rooted in the
real life Los Angeles killing of a
young black girl by a Korean storekeeper who was a woman. In THUGUN AND NATASHA, the gun is
personified and becomes THUGUN a master rapper and manipulator of people’s
hearts and minds. RAP replaces the
Greek Chorus, as Thugun the time-honored gun with all his attendant hubris, raps his way through life, exploring every
angle of temptation for young men in an ethnically divided community as well as
those living in fear while trying to keep their lives and their businesses
intact. Sookee the storekeeper becomes
a tragic perpetrator as well as deceived victim when she unwittingly kills the promising Natasha, an A student, a
brilliant, precocious teenager while Thugun, the ‘man-made oddity’ gloats in
his achievement. Sookee and Thugun are finally put on trial, as is Article
II, the second amendment of the U.S.
Constitution, humanity itself and the will of human beings to transcend their
differences and reach the ultimate intuition of reverence for life. THUGUN
AND NATASHA is a play for all ages.
