In the Red and Brown Water

A play by Terrell Alvin McCraney

A “profanely poetic ritual drama”, the story of a young woman track runner in a housing project in the Louisiana bayou. Playwright McCraney calls it “A Fast and Loose Play” on the Spanish Yerma and African Orishas (deities). In the Red and Brown Water pulsates with black and Creole patios, passion and humor.
