LORRAINE HANSBERRY THEATRE AND SAN FRANCISCO PLAYHOUSE PRESENT

[hieroglyph]

By Erika Dickerson-Despenza

Directed by Margo Hall

Streaming on-demand March 13 - April 3

Involuntarily displaced in Chicago two months post-Katrina, 13-year-old Davis wrestles with the cultural landscape of a new city and school community while secretly coping with the PTSD of an assault at the Superdome. With her mother still in New Orleans committed to the fight for Black land ownership and her father committed to starting a new life in the Midwest, divorce threatens to further separate a family already torn apart. Will Davis be left hanging in the balance? [hieroglyph] traverses the intersection of environmental racism, sexual violence, and displacement, examining the psychological effects of a state-sanctioned man-made disaster on the most vulnerable members of the Katrina diaspora.

Lorraine Hansberry Theatre has announced the appointment of Bay Area theatre titan Margo Hall as its new Artistic Director. An award-winning actor, director, playwright, and educator, Hall has been a leading presence in the Bay Area theatre community for more than 30 years. The first female Artistic Director of the theatre named for the trailblazing Black female playwright of A Raisin in the Sun, Hall takes the helm of Lorraine Hansberry Theatre at a moment where artists of color demand representation and change in the American Theatre.
