WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Zooman and the Sign follows the Tate family after their 12 year-old daughter is killed by a stray bullet. After their neighbors refuse to come forward with information to bring the killer to justice, Mr. Tate in his frustration hangs up an accusatory sign calling them cowards. The neighbors react with aggression. The play raises questions of how non-violent people respond to endemic violence and restrain their fury at the community and society's complacency. It urges us to ask the question "how can we prevent young men from becoming alienated Zooman's?" Zooman and the Sign is presented as part of the 2008 African American Theatre Festival.
