About Sugar in our Wounds

“Fantastically moving!”

The New York Times

World premiere by Donja R. Love

Directed by Saheem Ali

On a plantation during the Civil War, a mystical tree stretches toward heaven. As the battle rages on, the tree protects a young slave, James, while he reads newspapers about the imminent possibility of freedom. When a brooding stranger arrives, James and his makeshift family take the man in. Soon, an unexpected bond leads to a striking romance, and everyone is in uncharted territory. But is love powerful enough to set your true self free? This lyrical and lushly realized play is part of poet, filmmaker, and playwright Donja R. Love’s exploration of queer love at pivotal moments in black history. Directing is Saheem Ali (Kill Move Paradise).
