American Son, which earned the 2016 Laurents/Hatcher Foundation Award for a new play by an emerging playwright, had its world premiere at Barrington Stage last summer. It is described as follows: "Jamal’s car has been pulled over in the middle of the night. His mother and her estranged husband rush to the police station seeking answers and their son’s whereabouts. With no explanation forthcoming and emotions building, this highly charged drama twists and turns to an explosive conclusion."
The company will include Suzzanne Douglas, John Bolger, Mark Junek, and Mark Kenneth Smaltz. The set is designed by Jason Simms, with costumes by David Murin, lighting by Tyler Micoleau, and sound by Christopher J. Bailey.
