PERILOUS NIGHT

2m 2w

Third in a loose trilogy about race in America (after Black Sheep and Flag Day), this play takes place overnight in a mental-health facility. A patient who thinks she’s the future Queen of England who has time-traveled back to our era is suddenly confronted by an escaping black patient who fears for her life at the hands of the night security staff.
