An Emotionally Charged Journey Into the Past
In the rehearsal room, a performance piece on a little-known episode of early 20th century genocide takes a jolting turn when the actors – three black and three white – tap into personal resentments and ingrained prejudices. Tensions mount as they expose more of themselves than they ever wanted to.
“90 minutes of original, enlightening, pulse-pounding theater”Backstage
“a genuine thunderbolt … devastatingly funny … dangerous and primal”The Washington Post
“incendiary” “inventive” “impressively navigates the tricky boundaries that separate art and life, the haunted present and the haunting historical past”The New York Times
This piece is daring and unconventional in its storytelling. It features adult language as well as racially charged language and situations that may make patrons uncomfortable. It is intended for mature audiences. We recommend this play for patrons 16 and older.
