Gunshot Medley is a new play that blends mysticism and folk music to comment on the expendability of African-American life in the United States. Set in a haunted North Carolina graveyard, we encounter three African-American slaves - Betty, Alvis and George - who are stuck in a state of limbo, perpetually tasked with cleaning up the wreckage caused by systematic racism purveying contemporary America. Betty, Alvis and George must confront the need to answer the High Priestess of Souls call and their fear of what it means to do so.
Critical Breaks is a year-round residency program which supports individual artists and theater companies who are in the pivotal phases of developing new work through experimentation, intensive development, and a public work-in-progress showing.
