BWW Review: BLOOD DONE SIGN MY NAME at Raleigh Little Theatre is One History Lesson Not to be Missed
by Lauren Van Hemert - May 14, 2018

Playwright and performer Taylor Mac once said: "Theater reminds an audience of the things they've forgotten, dismissed, or buried or that others have buried for them. It unearths. It brings the conversation you aren't having with yourself into the room." Such is the case with Raleigh Little Theatre's world premiere ensemble version of Blood Done Sign My Name.

Just as Hamilton informed how people have come to understand American History, Wiley's Blood Done Sign My Name moves audiences to face North Carolina's past in a way that is palatable, accessible, and thought-provoking, which is good, because this is one history lesson you don't want to miss.
