Confederates (Off-Broadway, The Pershing Square Signature Center/Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre, 2022) | Playbill



SYNOPSIS: Sara, an enslaved woman who wants to fight for the Union in the Civil War, plots an increasingly dangerous path to freedom. Sandra, a brilliant modern-day political science professor, is forced to navigate acts of hostility and the undermining of her authority at work. Leaping back and forth between the parallel struggles of two Black women living 160 years apat, MacArthur “Genius” Fellow Dominique Morisseau (Ain’t Too Proud) takes an unflinching and illuminating look at the complicated and ongoing legacies of institutional racism and gender bias in today’s America.
