“The Secrets of Naci-rema”

The Truth Urban Theater Group (TTUTG) presents the Secrets of Naci-rema, a performance that provides a piercing lens into the daily lives of ordinary people of diverse racial, gender, and ethnic identities who take a bite out of the forbidden fruit and find themselves struggling to tame the unwieldy raft of consequences that is unleashed on all those in its path. The story is told through the eyes of Kofi, the main character, whose insight reveals the secret code of life’s harsh realities.

The Truth Urban Theater Group (TTUTG) otherwise known as The Truth, is a Long Island-based youth/young adult theater organization. The performances produced by TTUTG give audiences of all ages, races and backgrounds an intimate, visual look at life’s grim realities and divine beauty.  Using the captivating tools of drama, hip-hop and poetry, the powerful performances portray relatable characters, which reflect everyday human errors, poor judgment and the endless results of human flaws while leaving audiences thinking about the alternative.

Ammon School of Education, Levermore Global Scholars, the Collaboration Project: ICAN/WeCan and the Departments of Sociology, Anthropology and Art and Art History.
