Princeton's SHARE office will present a free production of "Upbeat," a play written and directed by Thema Bryant-Davis, at 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday, Feb. 27-28, in the Wilson Black Box Theater.

"Upbeat" is a play about the healing journey of seven black women as they face the challenges of racism, sexism, poverty, homophobia and violence. The play weaves the diverse women's stories through the style and energy of slam poetry. The writer, a psychologist and coordinator of the Sexual Harassment/Assault Advising, Resources and Education office, is the Nuyorican Queen of Slam and an expert on trauma recovery and identity.

The cast features poetry slam champions and accomplished actresses, including Miss Deaf America 2000-02.
