UPDATE: This production has now been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Signature Theatre concludes its 2019-2020 Off-Broadway season with Dominique Morisseau's world premiere drama Confederates, directed by Kamilah Forbes.
Performances are staged at The Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre within the Pershing Square Signature Center.
Sarah, a savvy slave turned Union spy, and Sandra, a brilliant professor in a modern-day private university, are facing similar struggles, even though they live over a century apart. Confederates leaps through time in order to trace the identities of these two black American women and explore the reins their racial and gender bias still hold on American educational systems today.
