Grade 8: Episode 2

Grade 8: Episode 2


The conclusion of Grade 8. Puberty, training bras and sexting boys. What’s a single dad to do?

Grade 8 is a heartwarming story of a father’s love. Told with charm, wit, and vulnerability, Grade 8 is a roller coaster of emotions, that will leave you holding on tightly to those you love the most.

A Toronto Fringe Festival hit, Grade 8 looks at what it means to be a black father today, and the role men play in young girls lives as they grow up and become woman.

Told through spoken word, this one-man show is part beat poetry and part urban lyricism.

Grade 8: Written and performed by Up From The Roots founder, Dwayne Morgan.
