Blood at the Root is the story of what happens when a black student chooses to occupy a primarily white space in her high school, inspiring hate, violence and chaos among her classmates. The play was inspired by the Jena Six case in Louisiana, and it examines the links between bias, justice and identity, asking audiences to consider what is lost when implicit biases shape our view of- and adherence to- justice. Written by Dominique Morisseau, the play is described as moving, lyrical and bold.
