Basic Training

Written and performed by Kahlil Ashanti

Basic Training is the true story of Kahlil Ashanti's hilarious experience as a member of a military entertainment troupe called Tops In Blue. As Ashanti begins a new life in the U.S. Air Force, a shocking revelation forces his attention home to face the violently abusive childhood he was trying to leave behind. Twenty-three unforgettable characters guide you through this incredible true tale of survival and forgiveness in the face of domestic violence and hatred, all experienced through Ashanti's rapid-fire physical talent and comedy.
