America. 1970. Black Vietnam veteran Beau Willie Brown is held in custody, accused of a heinous crime. A story comes to light that sticks in the throat, a story murmured between dark dreams.
*"beau come back from ’nam with empty eyes and hands like stone
the war started long before he got on that plane"*
but i cd only whisper wrestles with being vulnerable and black in white America. Fusing the physical and the poetic, a strange song emerges from the warble of police sirens, the percussion of machine guns, and the chants of voices only you can hear.
Sophie Watson for Tabula Rasa Theatre brings you the world premiere of this fierce and lyrical new play.
