"22nd & Sterling" is a play about a retired cop who killed a young activist 20 years ago. Two decades later, the victim's mother is set on having City Hall name a street in her son's honor because of his service to the community.

The drama, written by Wendell Etherly and directed by Daryl D. Brooks, is one of several performances in the 8th Annual Black Playwrights Festival running through April 21. This year's festival honors playwright Paul Oakley Stovall.

Tickets are $15 per night, and festival passes are $50.
