What is The Danger?
Winner of the 2015 Rita Goldberg Prize, The Danger: A Homage to Strange Fruit, is a theatrical symphony in four movements. Inspired by the mysterious death of Lennon Lacy in Bladenboro, NC, it is a dystopic ghost play that contemplates the legacy of violence against Black bodies in America. The play follows interracial couple He and She into the world of The Station, a long ago abandoned rail station waiting room, an in-between place. The Station houses Black souls who left the earth in violent ways, and who constantly seek their way home. It is through the journey of The Danger, and guidance by the mystical madwoman/goddess of the world, Gyp, that He and She come to realize their place within the world of The Station.
