The world premiere of Charly Evon Simpson's new play 'It's Not a Trip It's a Journey' has opened at Round House Theatre in Bethesda, MD in collaboration with the theater's first annual National Capital New Play Festival. Simpson's play, directed skillfully by Nicole A. Watson, invites audiences along on June's (Erin Margaret Pettigrew) arduous trip, or journey rather, of self-discovery as she travels with her friends from New York City to the Grand Canyon. All four friends have a purpose drawing them towards escape. Whether it be a roadside attraction or getting over an ex, all four wind up battling thoughts, feelings, experiences, and truths that they had been suppressing about their intersecting identities of being Black and femme in this country.
