PREMATURE

by Rashaad Ernesto Green

On a summer night in Harlem during her last months at home before starting college, seventeen-year-old poet Ayanna (Zora Howard) meets Isaiah (Joshua Boone). It's not long before these two artistic souls are drawn together in a passionate summer romance with all-too-real consequences.

Synopsis

On a summer night in Harlem during her last months at home before starting college, seventeen-year-old poet Ayanna (Zora Howard) meets Isaiah (Joshua Boone), a charming music producer who has just moved to the city.  It's not long before these two artistic souls are drawn together in a passionate summer romance.  But as the highs of young love give way to jealousy, suspicion, and all-too-real consequences, Ayanna must confront the complexities of the adult world--whether she is ready or not.  Emotionally raw, intimate, and honest, Premature is at once timeless and bracingly contemporary in its portrait of a young woman navigating the difficult choices that can shape a life.
