A powerfully thought-provoking & urgently timely exploration of race, identity, and the complex realities of being Black in America, "American Son" follows a mother and her estranged husband, both anxiously awaiting news about their missing teenage son at a Florida police station. As the night unfolds, their conversation with a white police officer takes unexpected turns, revealing deep-seated prejudices, assumptions, and societal issues that plague our nation.
"American Son" is a gripping and emotional journey that explores the struggles and fears of Black parents in America, and how they must navigate a world that constantly questions their existence. It is a poignant reminder of the need for empathy, compassion, and understanding in our society today. BAM Talent is pleased to present this necessary piece as a part of our Season of Umoja.
“American Son” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc. www.concordtheatricals.com
