LAYON GRAY'S PLAY WILLY BOBO SELECTED AS A FINALIST
Layon Gray's new work Willy Bobo has been selected as a finalist in the 2022 New Play Festival presented by the Kansas City Melting Pot Theatre this July. Willy Bobo is a two man show. A spin off of the iconic play A Raisin In The Sun ... both Willy and Bobo are friends of Walter Lee Younger. The three of them had discussed an idea of opening their own liquor store.
In a pivotal emotional moment Bobo tells Walter Lee that Willy has run off with the money Walter gave him to invest in the liquor store deal. WHAT IF .... Willy never left the city... WHAT IF Willy is hiding out in an abandoned hotel room on the south side of Chicago waiting for Bobo to return.
In this suspenseful " two man" show, does a "dream deferred sag like a heavy load... or does it Explode!!!
