About the Project

Ma’Sue Productions’ original play provides poetic, thought-provoking, and frequently confrontational language in its journey through the psychic and social conditions and contradictions of the contemporary Black urban male experience. Directed by John Dayo Aliya, this show includes dramatic vignettes utilizing music, poetry, and traditional theatrical forms. The play relays stories gathered from men ages 16-35 in Akron, Ohio in 2014. The stories were turned into a play by co-writers John Dayo Aliya and John Smith. The event was produced by Ma’Sue Productions and sponsored by Center for AppliedTheatre and Active Culture, The W.O.M.B and Stop the Violence Movement.

Last year Ma’Sue Productions re-mounted a revised version of “Or Does It Explode?” Due to much acclaim from the community they were awarded a 25,000 matching grant to tour the show to community centers, schools and pop-up sights throughout the city. The goal is use great art in order to facilitate conversation around race and identity in the city of Akron.
