Smoke - The Play

We’re looking forward to the upcoming play by fellow boricua, Ernie De Silva from Bushwick, New York. Come out and support!

“Smoke is a seriocomic, solo driven piece starring Ernie De Silva and rapper/poet Eternal Mind. The story finds our main character locked in a battle of epic proportions for control of his creative voice. On one side stands the ancient forces inherent to all humans, and on the other the influence of modern day pharmaceuticals. Who wins in the end?”
