Where Storms Are Born

Obie Award winner and Tony Award nominee Liesl Tommy directs 2016 WTF Playwright-in-Residence Harrison David Rivers' world premiere play. Mourning the loss of her elder son Myles, Bethea (Myra Lucretia Taylor) tries to help her younger son Gideon through his grief. But as revelations surrounding Myles' incarceration and death emerge, both mother and son must decide whether to fight or let go. With wit and empathy, this play reminds us of the courage and resilience it takes to chart a better way forward for the ones we love.
