the yard presents
blood on the root
AT THE BROADWAY ARMORY 5917 N BROADWAY
for people between the ages 12-20.
Jackalope Theatre Company and The Yard team up again to bring back this 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.
