The New York premiere of Naomi Wallace's The Liquid Plain began performances at the Pershing Square Signature Center on Tuesday, February 17.

Directed by Kwame Kwei-Armah, the play is set on the docks of late-18th-century Rhode Island where two runaway slaves, Adjua (Kristolyn Lloyd) and Dembi (Ito Aghayere), plan a desperate run to freedom. A chance encounter triggers an unexpected collision of worlds where painful truths are uncovered and the brutality of past crimes spills into the next generation.
