Show Info

By Monica Bauer
Directed by Glory Kadigan
With Russell Jordan and Kailah S. King


Inspired by real events, in 1969, in a segregated city in the American Midwest bursting with racial tension, a 14-year-old black girl, Vivian, was shot by a white cop, igniting one of the worst race riots in American history. No one knew anything about her: just her name, her age, and how she died. 

This fantasia for two actors gives Vivian a life, a family, a love of music, and a reason to live; the jazz legend who's back in the neighborhood might be her real father. Can they find each other before the city explodes?
