In rural Tennessee at the height of the Civil Rights Movement, two young African-American couples struggle to understand justice, love, and their own responsibilities. TOO HEAVY FOR YOUR POCKET beautifully explores the sacrifices and tolls in the fight for freedom and equality that are placed, not only on the fighters, but the people they love.

"Bozie, who seems our hero, clearly plays the role of clown, and his friends enjoy it. Truth to tell, they all have wonderful senses of humor. Yet there's an edge, one we see first in Bozie. Even as they celebrate his acceptance into college, he has a brief explosion of rage amid his own pride. What lies behind it?"

"Too Heavy For Your Pocket, the West Coast Premiere of Jiréh Breon Holder’s fantastic play about two families in 1960’s Nashville, is a touching and emotional success on every level and a wonderful production by Sacred Fools. - Highly Recommended"

"This play written by Jireh Breon Holder takes a historical point in 20th century American history and develops a melodrama that is both stirring and fiery in terms of emotion. The ensemble cast of these four players show their skills to portray their characters with a sense of believability through Michael A. Shepperd’s stage direction."
