Kitchen Dog Theater is proud to present Br'er Cotton by Tearrance?Arvelle?Chisholm. Br'er Cotton tackles complicated issues of racism and racial identity through the lens of three generations wildly differing attitudes and responses. The play raises difficult questions that have no easy answers and does it in a way that is fiercely theatrical, fresh, and innovative. The Play:? Lynchburg, Virginia. The former site of a thriving cotton mill is now an impoverished neighborhood. Deeply affected by all the recent killings of young black men like himself,?Ruffrino, a 14 year old?"militant," incites riots at school and online. More and more at odds with his mother and grandfather, the boy's anger grows beyond containment while the family home literally sinks into the cotton field, and no one seems to notice but him.?He's out to save the world, wake up the zombies, and prove by any means necessary that Black Lives Matter.
