EVE'S SONG

LuEsther Hall

October 23 - December 2

Estimated Run Time 1 hours and 50 minutes with no intermission

World Premiere

Written by Patricia Ione Lloyd
Directed by Jo Bonney

Join in today for early access

From The Public’s Emerging Writers Group alum and 2017-18 Tow Playwright-in-Residence Patricia Ione Lloyd (Pretty Hunger) and Obie Award-winning director Jo Bonney (Mlima's Tale) comes a stunning, genre-bending new drama about the haunting of a black family in America.

In the aftermath of a messy divorce and a daughter coming out as queer, Deborah is trying to keep things normal at home. But as black people continue to be killed beyond their four walls, the outside finds its way in, blurring the lines between family dynamics, politics, and the spirit world. How long can family dinners keep the dangers outside at bay?

Filled with dark humor and boiling suspense, EVE’S SONG examines our present racial climate through the eyes of a regular American family.

Developed in residence as the Tow Emerging Playwright-in-Residence at The Public Theater.

Eve’s Song

It’s one of the most well-known tropes of horror movies: the black character is almost always the first one to die. But on the heels of Jordan Peele’s Get Out, the guys at @nprcodeswitch decided to dive into the history of race in horror films with guests like Peele himself and scholars like Robin Means Coleman.
