Blood at the Root at Arthur Miller Theater

. November 1, 2017.

Originally written for Penn State’s Graduate Acting Program, Blood at the Root was inspired by the 2006 incident at Jena High School in Louisiana when six black teenagers faced charges for assaulting a white student. That followed several other school incidents, including nooses being hung from a tree where white students usually gathered, but beneath which a black girl was one day bold enough to sit. “It all got roots,” states a character in the play. “ Why some people talk the way they talk, or hang out with who they hang out with, or love who they love, or hate who they hate—all got root.” Morriseau, refers to the play as a “choreopoem”, which will be performed by U-M actors.
