About the ripple, the wave that carried me home

In this world premiere commissioned by Berkeley Rep, Tony-nominated playwright Christina Anderson brings us a poignant, transporting, and quietly subversive story of racial justice, political legacy, and family forgiveness.

Janice’s childhood was steeped in her parents’ activism as they fought for the integration of public swimming pools in 1960s Kansas and taught scores of Black children to swim. But Janice later steps away from her parents’ politics and starts her own life and family far away—until she’s pressed into speaking at a ceremony honoring her father. "the ripple, the wave that carried me home" is a moving exploration of a family’s response to injustice and a daughter’s reckoning with her political inheritance.

"Anderson is a gifted playwright you want to pay attention to. She has the voice of a poet." - VARIETY
