About Defacing Michael Jackson

*2014 Winner of Lincoln Center's Act One Prize*

Set among the swamps and canals of rural Florida, Defacing Michael Jackson follows a motley group of African-American teenagers who create their own Michael Jackson fan club in 1984. But when a Caucasian boy moves to the neighborhood and tries to join the club, all the rules of the community are challenged and changed. Defacing Michael Jackson is a satire about the do's and don'ts of Blackness, hero worship, and American identity.
