San Pere, Louisiana: Oya runs fast, but her collegiate future is placed on hold to care for her mother.

Inspired by Federico García Lorca’s Yerma and Yoruban cosmology, Tarell Alvin McCraney’s In the Red and Brown Water is a lyrical offering at the intersection of ancestral myth and ritual about a young woman’s coming-of-age navigating lovers, community, and her chosen path. Join us at the Stanley Museum of Art for a staged reading of the play by the Department of Theatre Arts.

Event will be accompanied by light refreshments. 

Please be advised that this play contains explicit language, sexual themes, culturally charged and explicit language.
