Blood at the Root

By Dominique Morisseau
Directed by Tiffany Nichole Greene

A striking ensemble drama based on the Jena Six, six Black students who were initially charged with attempted murder for a school fight after being provoked with nooses hanging from a tree on campus. This bold play examines the miscarriage of justice, racial double standards, and the crises in relations between men and women of all classes and, as a result, the shattering state of Black family life.

 

The Thursday, February 24 show is a preview performance.
