Blue Door

February 24 @ 7:30 pm - March 13 @ 10:30 pm

$39.

Written by Tanya Barfield

Directed by Akin Babatundé

Don’t miss the REP’s return to live performance!

Deep questions of personal and cultural identity, hidden underneath a carefully crafted façade of confidence and success, suddenly erupt in the soul of an African American mathematics professor when his white wife announces that she is leaving him over his refusal to attend the Million Man March.

Suffering from a disorienting bout of insomnia brought on by the implosion of his marriage, he inadvertently conjures the specters of his ancestors who lead him on an emotionally charged and often humorous journey through the past and present.

Brilliantly balanced between tragedy and comedy and woven through with original songs, Blue Door packs a powerful punch for all people as it examines important issues of identity, race, and the impact of the past on the present.
