Blood at the Root by Dominique Morisseau

January 31 – February 24, 2019

Louisiana: September, 2006 – An African American student sits under the school’s large oak tree, challenging its “whites only” status. The next morning, three nooses are discovered hanging from the tree; school administrators dismiss the incident as a prank. As racial tensions grow, six students wrestle with the causes and consequences of deeply-entrenched injustice. These young people speak openly about the prejudices and fears that stand in the way of their dreams, and find the courage to seek solutions for a better life for all.

Show Run Time: The run time of this production will be posted closer to Opening.
