BREAKDOWN

The Terrebonne plantation is in upheaval - the Master has died. His naïve young nephew tries to hold things together, but the evil neighbor is out to buy the land. Meanwhile, the slaves chat and gossip, and the beautiful, young ward of the estate has a secret that will change everything. Based on a controversial classic, this Obie Award winning play is part period satire and part meta-theatrical middle finger - it’s a provocative and moving challenge to the racial climate of “the land of the free” in both the antebellum South and today.
