They'll Neglect to Tell You by TS Hawkins

They'll Neglect to Tell You
by TS Hawkins

They'll Neglect to Tell You, by TS Hawkins, poetically paints an unfortunate truth of Philadelphia's social-political landscape. With educational budget cuts, prisons on the rise and white flight profiting from black and brown bodies struggling in the margins, Hawkins pens the reality of a city's "brotherly love".

They'll Neglect to Tell You, was created as part of "The Souls of Black Folk" project facilitated by Cara Blouin and housed in the Painted Bride Art Center. This solo production was written and performed by TS Hawkins.

In 2019, TS Hawkins was awarded the Jilline Ringle Solo Performance Residency at 1812 Productions. The focus of the residency was the development of a solo piece already in progress. Hawkins partnered with Lois Moses to expand They’ll Neglect to Tell You into a full-length solo production. Moses served as director, dramaturg, and videographer during the residency program.
