THE LIQUID PLAIN
by Naomi Wallace
directed by Kwame Kwei-Armah
On the docks of late 18th century Rhode Island, two runaway slaves, Adjua and Dembi, plan a desperate and daring run to freedom. When a chance encounter triggers an unexpected collision of worlds, painful truths are uncovered and the brutality of past crimes spills into the next generation. Winner of the 2012 Horton Foote Prize for Promising New American Play, THE LIQUID PLAIN brings to life a group of people whose stories have been erased from history.
