Can a conscientious mother choose between raising awareness and raising her kids? This ninety-minute one-act play uses mixed genres of spoken word poetry, turf dancing, meta and traditional theater to tell the stories of three women in the city of Oakland, dealing with issues of equity in education and the experience of gentrification in urban public schools. Rodriguez’s Hella Love Oakland was commissioned and developed by PlayGround, based on her popular 2012 Best of PlayGround short (also a 20th Anniversary Celebration finalist).
