Two Black American women – an enslaved rebel and a professor at a contemporary university – are having parallel experiences of institutional racism, though they live over a century apart. Tony-nominated playwright Dominique Morisseau’s exacting new play explores the reins that racial and gender bias still hold over American educational systems today.
This show contains strong language and sexual content. It is not suitable for children under the age of 18.
Approximate run time: 2 hours, with no intermission.

Promising young black actor Steve Harrison will stop at nothing to achieve success. He uses his charm to deceive and undermine older actor and mentor Marcus Chandler and make opportunities for himself to get on the Broadway stage. Steve achieves success in the black theater world, but the enemies he makes on his quest have long memories and stand in the way of his Broadway ambitions.
Succession explores the world of Black theatre through the actions of Steve Harrison, a promising young actor, who tramples over his mentor, Marcus Chandler, and all other perceived obstacles in his relentless quest to get on the Broadway stage.
Approximate run time: 1 hour, 45 minutes, with no intermission.
Onstage for Season 17
