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?
Good Works Productions produces socially conscious theater that provides opportunities for women and artists of color to entertain and inspire audiences.
