Br'er Cotton

July  20 - 22,  25 - 29 • 7:30 PM

Thoresen Theater,  Randolph College

A play researched and written in Lynchburg, Virginia by Terrance Chisholm as part of Endstation Theatre Company's Playwrights Initiative.  

The play takes place in Lynchburg. The former site of a thriving cotton mill is now an impoverished neighborhood. Deeply affected by all the recent killings of young black men like himself, Ruffrino, a 14 year old, incites riots at school and online. More and more at odds with his mother and grandfather, the boy's anger grows beyond containment while the family home literally sinks into the cotton field, and no one seems to notice but him.
