Blood At the Root

by Dominique Morisseau

Directed by Ruben Del Valle Jr.

In 2006, during a high school assembly, a student asked if he was allowed to sit under "Ol' Devoted," a grand oak tree in the schoolyard. The answer was a series of disturbing events that exposed our roots. Again. This play is based on a true story. It's our story. 

Mainstage Theatre on November 3-13
