Antoinette Nwandu's play, written partially in response to the slaying of Trayvon Martin and borrowing the format of Waiting for Godot with a dose of the biblical Exodus story, enjoyed a run at the Lincoln Center Theater in New York this past summer. Before that, in Chicago, it was the catalyst for some fierce controversy for its depiction of a racist white police officer, which one prominent critic of the Sun-Times decried as ignoring "black-on-black" violence. The Chicago theater scene responded angrily, and Nwandu herself penned an insightful defense: "Reconciliation is impossible without an honest conversation about who is angry at whom, and I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to present a reality that most black audience members identify with and find cathartic in a historically white institutional space." You'll have a chance to see Nwandu's acclaimed work, a testament to the forces driving Black Lives Matter and the search for the promised land. Nataki Garrett will direct.
