In the Red and Brown Water

TAGS: Drama Art Broadway Theater
Friday 4/16

New World School of the Arts presents the award-winning play In the Red and Brown Water, written by Tarell Alvin McCraney (NWSA 1999 alumnus) winner of an Academy Award for the 2016 film Moonlight. Directed by NWSA theater faculty member James Randolph the play will be presented online as a one-time Premiere, performed by juniors and seniors enrolled in the NWSA college theater program. In the Red and Brown Water is part of a trilogy of the Brother Sister Plays by Tarell McCraney. It takes place in San Pere Louisiana and it is the story of Oya a girl who has great hope but has to fight her inner struggles and those within the community she lives in. A beautiful combination of the stories of the pantheon of Yoruba Gods, poetry and contemporary urban influences. The play takes you on a great journey of humanity combining humor, pain and the search for love, acceptance and redemption. The heart and soul of the people in the play are around and within each of us. In the Red and Brown Water premiered in 2009 at the Steppenwolf Theatre in Chicago. In the Red and Brown Water Premieres on the Broadway On Demand (one time only).
