A One Man Play
Growing Up Daddy, is the poignant, semi-autobiography of internationally acclaimed performer, and original Def Poet, Kraal "Kayo" Charles. Heavily influenced by early 90s New York City, with a clever fusion of hip-hop, Al Green and rhythmic poetry as it's soundtrack; Kayo entertains with the funny, movingly personal dilemma of a performer and aspiring artist, on the precipice of success who is suddenly saddled with impending fatherhood. Throughout the memoir style reminiscence; from stories of whimsical women and fair-weather friends, to the estrangement of his own quirky, Caribbean father, Kayo's wit and presence invites both laughter and commiseration. Growing Up Daddy is rife with honesty, humor and the emotional conflict of forced maturity.

Harlem - Beyond the new real estate, underneath the economical resurgence, lies a greater divide between the haves and have nots. In , If Harlem Could Talk, you will hear the voices of its greatest inhabitants as they share in a collection of scenes (drama, spoken word, beats, jazz) the passion, pain, beauty and torment of the Harlem experience. Listen to the jazz connoisseur who watches with apprehension as the young rapper moves into his building, setting in motion a chain of events , which prove; change if even not welcomed is inevitable. Listen to the young woman whose innocence once considered a virtue, now has become a curse. Listen to the small time drug dealer who will soon learn that it’s not what you do that matters, but what you say that does.These are some of the voices of people that scream because they can’t be heard. This is the Real Harlem.
