Glass will receive a workshop production at JACK as part of their fall season. My collaborators and I are already hard at work, and we can’t wait to share this play with you. Save the date, friends! Or better yet, book your tickets now!
Glass is an evening-length fantasia by playwright Azure Osborne-Lee that conjures a creation myth in which the gods of Life and Death wrestle for control of their world, trampling anyone who gets in their way. During their reign of terror, a woman refuses to bend to their will, and is forced to kill her own children. She retreats from the world to recover from her trauma, but she can’t stay hidden forever. Will she find the courage to stand up to her gods? In inventing this world, Osborne-Lee offers new imaginings of Anansi the Spider, Brer Rabbit, and other iconic black characters.
