In the Red and Brown Water

Scene Dock Theatre

By Tarell Alvin McCraney
Directed by Anita Dashiell-Sparks

Spirited Oya, a promising young athlete who is offered a scholarship that could jump-start her future, must make a difficult choice: following her dream or caring for her mother. Playwright Tarell Alvin McCraney (Moonlight) draws on folk tales, Yoruba mythology and contemporary poets to tell a story about family, illness and the devastating decisions we’re forced to make as we grow up.
