Description

“Cullud Wattah,” a new work by Erika Dickerson-Despenza. A 2021 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize winner, this spellbinding and provocative Afro-surrealist play will also directed by Curtis Lovell.

It’s been 936 days since Flint has had clean water. Marion, a third-generation General Motors line worker, worries over impending layoffs while struggling to fight the poison that floods her home - and her family's bodies. When her sister, Ainee, seeks restitution for lead poisoning, secrets bubble to the surface, threatening their family and the entire city of Flint. “Cullud Wattah,” dives deep into how we make the best choices for our families’ future when there are no real and present options.
