About this show

Bulrusher, written by Eisa Davis, is set in 1955 Boonville, California, and tells the story of a multi-racial abandoned baby girl, Bulrusher who is found floating in a basket on the river. Growing up in an isolated predominately white town with its own homespun language, Bulrusher only questions her origins and investigates her identity when prompted by the arrival of a stranger. In a town where the unusual is normal (a brothel run by an aloof madam, a school run by a silent teacher), Bulrusher is still an outcast due to her painfully accurate clairvoyance. This new play, a world premiere, tells the story of a coming of age journey of a bi-racial woman. Leah C. Gardiner directs.
