In Donja Love’s “The Nigga Files,” high school plays out as a struggle for survival. With one student already gone, a teacher tries to save the rest of his pupils from succumbing to a variety of ailments including but not limited to substance abuse, family issues and sexuality confusion.
Love, who graduated from Temple with a degree in theater, describes the production as “an introspective look into the education system and inner-city youth.”
“The Nigga Files” is set to be performed this Saturday and Sunday in the Lantern Lab at St. Stephen’s Theater and on Monday at the Adrienne Theater as part of the Philadelphia Urban Theatre Festival.
