  Blood at the Root at Anacostia Playhouse

Blood at the Root

Anacostia Playhouse
2020 Shannon Place SE Washington

When a black student disrupts the status quo at her high school by occupying space typically reserved for white students, her community erupts in hate speech, violence and chaos. Inspired by the Jena Six case, which roiled tensions in Louisiana in 2006, Dominique Morisseau’s play scrutinizes the intrinsic links between justice, bias and identity. Moving, lyrical and bold, Blood at the Root probes the complexities of race, individual freedoms and what justice means when biases have been normalized. Watch it unfold at the Anacostia Playhouse in Washington, DC.
