UK Department of Theatre + Dance presents "Blood at the Root" by Dominique Morisseau

THIS PERFORMANCE TAKES PLACE IN THE BRIGGS THEATRE, LOCATED IN THE FINE ARTS BUILDING (465 ROSE STREET)

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) whose title is inspired by the song Strange Fruit, recorded by Billy Holiday, 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. 

General Admission.
