Solo Play

Running-Into-Me-title is written and performed by Vickie Tanner and directed by Bruce McCarty and Padraic Lillis. It is a solo play about a young person’s struggle to overcome internal and environmental obstacles. It is deeply inspired by my own experiences growing up in a dysfunctional, crime-ridden section of South Central Los Angeles and my work with young people as a teaching artist in New York.
