'TASHA

  • Hi-ARTS 215 East 99th Street New York, NY, 10029 United States (map)

Written by Yusef Miller
Directed by Zoey Martinson

'TASHA, inspired by Sophocles' Antigone, is set in a modern republic where White Supremacy and Black Civil Disobedience, each, are at their height. The play centers on Natasha Brown, a fictional Sasha Obama. 'Tasha buries her cousin, defying the edict - 'no one shall bury a law-breaker who dies in the act of committing a crime.' The issuer is President Waters, a Trump-Clinton-like character. Will 'Tasha's death restore order or fuel injustice?
