THE CALL examines the racial barriers, cultural assumptions, and emotional complexities of growing a family through the scope of a white family who pursues the adoption of a child from Africa. Entertain, for a moment, the multitude of layers involved in such a choice. THE CALL tackles not only adoption, but marriage, race, and entitlement. With a growing reputation for producing shows that provoke contemplation and conversation, you don't want to miss this meaningful work.
