WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Hailed at its premiere in 1996 as bold, intimate, outrageous and overflowing with theatrical invention, Insurrection: Holding History follows Ron Porter, a young gay African-American graduate student as he travels back to the south of 1831 and participates in Nat Turner's slave rebellion. When his 189-year-old ancestor leads his mystical journey through time and history to the moment of crisis, he confronts his own misconceptions and stereotypes as well as his understanding of what it is to be gay and black in our modern world. Filled with "comedy, poetry and pure chutzpah," according to Tony Award-winning playwright Tony Kushner, "this is a gorgeous, fresh and vital play from a very exciting playwright." The play is intended for mature audiences.
