Presented by the College of Charleston Department of Theatre and Dance, Buzzer is a dark yet comic drama by playwright Tracey Scott Wilson. Personal transformations in a changing neighborhood may cost more than the rent. When home is part of a newly gentrifying neighborhood, what needs to change to insure one’s comfort? As in most of her plays, Wilson proffers many questions as answers in this fast-paced race-, class- and privileged-laced play.
Jackson, a young African-American man, has just bought an apartment in a transitioning Brooklyn neighborhood – formerly the mean streets of his childhood. Joined by his white girlfriend Suzy and also his privileged, addiction battling friend Don, Jackson and his roommates are challenged by tensions and their responses to new life in an old place, a place not always inviting but one that is now home.
