“A far-from-civil legacy”
Sara, an enslaved woman who wants to fight for the Union in the Civil War, plots an increasingly dangerous path to freedom. Sandra, a brilliant modern-day political science professor, is forced to navigate acts of hostility and the undermining of her authority at work. Leaping back and forth between the parallel struggles of two Black women living 160 years apart, MacArthur “Genius” Fellow Dominique Morisseau (Ain’t Too Proud) takes an unflinching and illuminating look at the complicated and ongoing legacies of institutional racism and gender bias in today’s America. This thought-provoking, dynamically engaging, world-premiere American Revolutions co-commission with Penumbra Theatre is directed by OSF Artistic Director Nataki Garrett.
Development of Confederates was supported by grants from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and The Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust.
