Power House Movie: “Thin Skin” (music-infused drama) April 15, 2022 @ 7:00 pm $10 – $15

Gesa Power House Theatre presents a Power House Movie screening of the music-infused drama Thin Skin on Friday, April 15, 2022 at 7:00 p.m. Director Charles Mudede will be in attendance for a live conversation with Gesa Power House Theatre Director of Film Programming Warren Etheredge following the screening.

Ahamefule Joe Oluo’s days are spent at a soul-deadening corporate job and his nights come alive behind a trumpet at Seattle jazz clubs. As he struggles to climb out of the ruins of his broken marriage, Aham has to deal with endless bureaucracy, a boss trying to lead him to the Lord, and his mother who won’t cut ties with his ex. Aham is living with his entire family once again in his sister’s cramped one bedroom apartment. The one person missing from this living situation is Aham’s estranged Nigerian father. His brief reappearance sends the family into a tailspin and a search for meaning. Pressed together in this vise of a home, the family struggles with adult life and the meaning of family.

Thin Skin, filmed primarily in Seattle, is is loosely based on the award-winning Off-Broadway show Now I’m Fine and the This American Life story “The Wedding Crasher”.
