Theatre Mainstage Production: “Blood at the Root”
December 7, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
BOSTON ARTS ACADEMY PRESENTS: “Blood at the Root” by Dominique Morisseau
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.
Tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for seniors and students. Tickets for this showing can be purchased here: https://bostonartsacademy.org/batr_dec_7_730/
