PureTerrah Witcher's debut play, A Hard Head Makes a Soft Behind, tells the comical story of a pre-teenage boy, Jay-shun, whose foolish antics and defiant nature gets him repeatedly knocked “Oops upside the head” and sent back into Black history.
Soon he discovers that living in the past isn't an easy task, especially for someone with the reputation of being "hardheaded." With each slick flip of the lip his chances of getting back to the future grow even dimmer.
Refusing the to take the helpful advise of his predecessors who are disguised as regular folk, Jay-shun is kept locked in the past. These other characters are moved through the play as Jay-shun’s ancestral guides – challenging him to take the wisdom of his elders. Finally, after trying and failing to find his way home alone, Jay-shun gives up his solo pursuit and takes the advice of those who came before him. Home is now only a quick Black History quiz away!
