Synopsis:

When opportunity knocks, do you stay true to those who groomed you? Or soar solo, like every other shooting star?

Step into the heart of Atlanta’s vibrant music scene during the neo-soul era of the late 90s. IN THE POCKET is a compelling musical play that captures the essence of a time when rhythm and poetry flowed through the veins of the city, setting the stage for an unforgettable story of ambition, music, community, and transformation.

When Nomadic, a fiery but untrained vocalist, saunters into the rehearsal of the city’s hottest band, it’s not just her sultry voice and overly confident veneer that changes this talented group of musicians. She ignites a spark within the band and her arrival challenges the very foundations of their relationships and dreams.

As the story unfolds, the characters navigate the complexities of the music industry, their personal lives, and their visions for the future. Themes of loyalty, passion, and creativity pulse through the narrative, inviting the audience to reflect on the price of success and the bonds that music can create — and destroy.
