An epic, time-straddling new play that traces the stories of two Black American women.
Two women, Sara and Sandra, experience parallel phenomenons even though they live over 100 years apart. The former is a spy for the Union army during the Civil War and the latter, a tenured professor at a modern-day university. Both women have to navigate the intersecting biases of racism and sexism, while trying to carve out a space of their own in their respective positions. The New York premiere of Confederates, written by MacArthur Fellow Dominique Morisseau, is directed by Stori Ayers.
