by Dominique Morisseau

This production is produced in association with Oregon Shakespeare Festival.

An enslaved rebel turned Union spy and a tenured professor in a modern-day private university are having parallel experiences of institutionalized racism, despite existing more than a century apart. MacArthur Genius Award-Winning Playwright, Dominique Morisseau, brilliantly bends the continuum of time and weaves together the stark realities of racial and gender bias both women face in this illuminating drama.

Runtime: 1 Hour and 45 Minutes (No Intermission)
