In the Red and Brown Water

by Tarell Alvin Mccraney
directed by Marc David Pinate
Present Day San Pere, Louisiana. In the Red and Brown Water is the story of Oya, an African-American teenager named for the Yoruba warrior-spirit of the wind. Oya is an up-and-coming star athlete, but postpones a university track scholarship in order to take care for her ailing mother. Written by award-winning playwright and Theatre School alumnus Tarell Alvin McCraney, Oya's story of womanhood and life unfolds in a dreamscape of street talk and poetry.
