We can all see each other a little better under stage lights. John Dayo-Aliya illuminates what life is like for an American black male in the original play “Or Does it Explode?,” a series of vignettes the Ma’Sue Productions Artistic Director co-wrote. It’s been staged twice and will tour community centers and parks in Akron. Dayo-Aliya discusses the play’s most popular vignette about a black boy watching the TGIF lineup onTV.

“Everybody regardless of the color of their skin was there for ‘Full House.’ This young man talked about how he had wished Uncle Joey could be his uncle and the reality of his own uncle who was incarcerated — the distance between his life and the lives he watched.

That’s the piece most people talk about. It gives them insight into what it means to be a minority. To have the same experience, the same longing but also have your life forced behind this veil, forced into the shadow and to be longing for all things — all the bounty of culture — that is ours.

To share that moment of my own experience with this room of people is exhilarating. I feel the most seen and visible as a black man during that scene than perhaps any other moment in my professional life.”

— as told to Kelly Petryszyn // photo by Aimee Lambes
