BLOOD AT THE ROOT
by Dominique Morisseau
directed by Darryl V. Jones
A striking new ensemble drama inspired by the Jena 6. Six Black students are initially charged with attempted murder for a school fight after being provoked with nooses hanging from a tree on campus. This bold new play by Dominique Morisseau (Ain’t Too Proud, Skeleton Crew) examines the miscarriage of justice, racial double standards, and the crises in relations between men and women of all classes.
From the award-winning playwright of Ain’t Too Proud, Skeleton Crew, and Detroit ’67
