Marty and the Hands That Could” tells the story of Marty, who was released from prison on the eve of his 25th birthday. Marty returns home to his family in South Philly, equipped with a handwritten manuscript and big dreams to turn his life around. But his cousin Junior has also come home with problems of his own, setting them on a collision course as they struggle to break free of the curse that has haunted their family for generations. The play asks: Can Marty put his hands to good use, or is his fate already written?
