Blood at the Root

Blood at the Root
November 5 - 13 (Preview November 4)
by Dominique Morisseau, Directed by Ruben Del Valle

In 2006, during a high school assembly, a student asked if he was allowed to sit under “Ol' Devoted,” a grand oak tree in the schoolyard. The answer was a series of disturbing events that exposed our roots. Again. This play is based on a true story. It’s our story.

Contains material recommended for mature audiences.
Proceeds benefit the TU Foundation.
Performances are approximately 90 minutes and presented without intermission.

Blood at the Root is based on true events that took place in 2006 at a high school in Jena, Louisiana.  This story reminds us of the inequities that still exist in America and we hope that our production brings awareness to our varied experiences when confronted with hate. With a collective awareness let’s plant a new seed and begin again. Can we agree that when one suffers, we all suffer? Blood at the Root contains profanity, sexually charged language, derogatory language, and racially offensive imagery.

In coordination with the Center for Student Diversity and the Office of Inclusion and Institutional Equity, talkback sessions will be offered immediately following the performance on Friday, November 5, and Thursday, November 11.
During the production, some actors will temporarily remove masks. This practice is within protocols established by the Department of Theatre Arts in compliance with TU policy and best practices from professional theatre and is limited to department-approved activities.

Audience members must remain masked at all times.
