BLOOD AT THE ROOT

BLOOD AT THE ROOT
Presented by CSU Department of Theatre and Dance

Written by Dominique Morisseau
Directed by Colleen Jackson

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 (Sunset Baby, Detroit '67, Skeleton Crew) 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.

Time Period: New Millennium/21st Century, Duration: 105 Minutes, Setting: In and around the community of Cedar High School, Additional Features: No intermission.

Sunday, April 26 at 2:00pm to 4:00pm
