“Hell to the no! I ain’t joining no drama club.”

Wannabe gangster, Jayden is on the verge of being expelled from St. Coolio High until Brother G offers him a way out… by taking the lead role in the school production of West Side Story. Award-winning playwright Leki Jackson Bourke turns musical tropes on their head in this hilarious South Auckland redemption story with savage smack, rap and krumping.
