"The mall is the town. The town is the mall. The mall is a disco mall." Fleaven is the tale of Heaven, a disco professional laid low by the town villain Flame who was left behind as Heaven achieved international disco stardom with the band Denim Shorts. Turning to hip hop and Rick James covers, Flame and his entourage terrorize the townspeople in an attempt to reunite with Heaven, leading (of course) to an epic disco-mall showdown.
Told in a startlingly original style, Fleaven explores the breaking up and reconciliation of a deep friendship gone dark. Unlike any play you've ever seen, Fleaven sings and plays, rhymes and raps, dances and roller-skates its way through a Seussian disco dreamscape.
Playwright Miki Johnson was recently honored by the Houston Press in their inaugural Houston Theater Awards as the Best Playwright for American Falls which had its Catastrophic world premiere last May.
