Written by Dominique Morisseau
February 2-25, 2024.

Two Black American women – an enslaved rebel and a professor at a contemporary university – are having parallel experiences of institutional racism, though they live over a century apart. Tony-nominated playwright Dominique Morisseau’s exacting new play explores the reins that racial and gender bias still hold over American educational systems today. Premiering at the Hattiloo Theatre.
Approximate run time: 2 hours, with no intermission.
