Select a Package

We welcome back playwright Mansa Ra following his triumphant 2017 Underground debut.

In this new work commissioned by Roundabout, three generations of men live under one roof and grapple with their own truths of what it means to be Black and gay. It’s an exploration of pride, pain, and patience through the unflinching eyes of fathers and sons. 

Running time: 1 hour and 30 minutes, no intermission.
