Daniel Beaty’s provocative play, Emergency, explores the effects of slavery with a surprisingly fresh and quirky approach. An award-winning artist, Beaty portrays a cast of 40 characters, including a homeless man, a scientist, a Republican business executive, a street vendor and 11-year-old boy from the projects who all respond to the phenomenon.
Through the characters’ individual responses and their varied testimonies on identity and personal freedom, Emergency weaves a stirring commentary on modern black life.
