Loosely inspired by Chekhov’s THE SEAGULL, BLACK DOVES follows a middle class African-American family in present day Brooklyn, New York. When a loved one commits an unforgivable crime, will the family deal with the generational trauma that has shaped their lives or will they choose to ignore it which only continues the cycle?

Every fall HB Studio invites theater artists and playwrights to apply for The HB Rehearsal Space Residency, which provides access to free rehearsal space for the development of new work. Recipients are asked to offer a minimum of two public presentations of their work in process. These presentations may range from a seated reading, to a full dress rehearsal, and they are intended to provide the recipients the opportunity to interact with the HB community and receive valuable feedback on their work in process.
