Dear Mapel

Performance Dates

Written and performed by Psalmayene 24, a preeminent voice in hip hop theater and Mosaic’s Andrew W. Mellon playwright-in-residence, this joyfully energetic coming of age story takes viewers from Park Slope, Brooklyn to Washington, DC, on a journey through Psalm’s adolescence and major life milestones which are often accentuated by the absence of his father, Mapel. Through a series of letters, both real and imagined, we explore the power of the written word to connect us with our loved ones, our past and our future.
