Blood at the Root
Written by Dominique Morisseau
Presented by The Yard and Jackalope Theatre
Directed by Joel Ewing
A striking new 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 new play by Dominique Morisseau 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.
This play takes place at Theater on the Lake, as part of the 2018 Theater on the Lake Summer Theater Festival.
