Sunday morning should be a safe space, full of the comforting rituals of family life. In Jerome Hairston's new play, this is right where the ties that bind begin to fray. Helen, R.P., and their two adolescent boys have built a life together, defying the odds against their mixed-race home--until the mysterious calls and unexplained hesitations start the anxious drumbeat of doubt. What secrets do we hide even from ourselves? Can any bonds really bridge the gulfs that separate us? a.m. Sunday probes our most hopeful assumptions with its frank look at contemporary life along the racial divide. Marion McClinton directs.
