In the aftermath of a messy divorce and a daughter coming out as queer, Deborah is trying to keep things normal at home. But as black people continue to be killed beyond their four walls, the outside finds its way in, blurring the lines between family dynamics, humor, politics, and the spirit world. How long can family dinners keep the dangers outside at bay?

From The Public’s Emerging Writers Group alum and 2017-18 Tow Playwright-in-Residence Patricia Ione Lloyd (Pretty Hunger) and Obie Award-winning director Jo Bonney (Mlima’s Tale) comes a stunning, genre-bending new drama that examines our present racial climate through the eyes of a regular American family.

EVE’S SONG is presented by The Public Theater (425 Lafayette Street). For tickets and information, visit publictheater.org/Eves-Song or call 212.967.7555.
