A World Premiere by Obie Award-Winner Nikkole Salter, author of Carnaval and Lines in the Dust
Commissioned in partnership with the NJPAC Stage Exchange, a program of the New Jersey Performing Arts Center
When a Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape teen is caught vandalizing property in protest of the school's Indian mascot, her mother cuts a deal to help her atone with the school. But when their tribe's traditions clash with the championship bound high school football team's, the two worlds are left wondering how - or if - they can co-exist. Another story ripped from NJ headlines from the author of Lines in the Dust, Indian Head asks us to take a hard, honest look at how we appropriate culture and the ways in which we honor and exploit tradition.
North Meets South
Featuring Vanderlei Pereira, Leo Traversa and special guest Mike Lee.
A World Premiere by Andrew Rosendorf
Paralyzed in the car accident that claimed her mother's life, 17-year-old Ellen is determined to experience all her teenage years have to offer. But when the past comes knocking on the door in the form of Ellen's brother, her small family's delicate balance is upended. In a home awash with anger, guilt, and Ellen's raging hormones, Tranquil is a raw exploration of one shattered family striving to be whole again.
