This original play written by local playwright Kenyatt M. Godbolt is the 2022 winner of the annual Playwright's Festival, a collaboration between The Matthews Playhouse and the African American Playwrights Group (AAPG). Set in New York City in the 1990s, A House is Not a Home explores the dynamics between father and son, hip-hop culture and the consequences of divorce. As a corrections officer for the City of New York, David is struggling to accept his role in the destruction of his family and marriage. Things take a turn for the worse when David invites a female friend to live with him and his twenty-year-old son.
