King Davis is a recovering addict whose only legacy is the six-flat building in Bronzeville that his mother owns and it is in immediate threat of being taken from his family due to mounting back taxes. King swoops in to save the day only to find out his mama has entrusted the building’s future to a new neighbor.
How can King finally show who he is when the people around him only see him for who he was? This searing drama is about survival, loss, and redemption. Dandelions is about who gets to stay and who’s weeded out.

On an express train home to watch Scandal, Isis gets all the elements of her favorite show – drama, passion and heart-stopping suspense when she collides into a professor who dares to swirl into her orbit and take her breath away. A heady mix of Baraka’s The Dutchman and the mythos of Isis and the Seven Scorpions, PULLED PUNCHES investigates identity politics in the age of being woke and well-intentioned. How long should we pull punches before we let them fly? Does that choice promote true connection, violence, insanity or freedom?
