Graveyard Shift

Feb 7 – Mar 8, 2020
170 N Dearborn St, Chicago, IL 60601, USA

“Ripped from the headlines” is the phrase that’s used to describe plays like Korde Arrington Tuttle’s Graveyard Shift. Based loosely on the legacy of Sandra Bland, who was arrested for a traffic violation and died in jail three days later, this world premiere speaks to power differentials that escalate into tragedy, almost as if fated. The play is directed by Dayna Taymor. —L.J.
