Walls: An America Story

Description

Walls: An American Story

When newly-engaged Abigail and Carver receive DNA tests as a wedding gift, they interrogate what it means to marry someone of a different race. As they grapple with their identities from midnight to dawn, family legends and stories interrupt their idealized future together. In this non-linear drama of histories unfolding, can Abigail and Carver overcome the past and forge a new story together? Conceived by JMU alum Paul Holland, Walls is developed by JMU playwriting professor Ingrid De Sanctis, and includes writings from her 2018 Advanced Playwriting class. This world premiere, which features students from JMU’s School of Theatre and Dance, is made possible by the support of a 2017 JMU Provost Grant.
