USED TO WAS (MAYBE DID) by Brian Dykstra
directed by Margaret Perry
Used To Was (Maybe Did) is written in the language of Hip Hop and tells the story of spoken word poets who compete for recognition while a young groupie may blossom into a real poet. The play explores questions of greed, ethics and race and how easy it is for Hip Hop artists to sell out in order to achieve fame, and how destructive that selling out may prove to be. Is Hip Hop a language of love and inclusion, or is it all about the green?
