Almost 13 is a solo drama about a young girl surviving a hot, violent summer in Brooklyn. All she wants to do is jump in the waves at Coney Island and see the fireworks. Emotionally broken from witnessing a murder, she finds herself dancing with a ghost. Can she endure being caught between a disintegrating working-class family at home and racial violence on the streets? Like Japanese Kintsugi pottery, she is reduced to shards and rebuilt more resilient than before. Award-winning theatre artist Joan Kane plays all 10 colourful Brooklynites.
