ALLEY ALL NEW FESTIVAL 2023
BY CHISA HUTCHINSON
DIRECTED BY JADE KING CARROLL
Chisa Hutchinson (Amerikin, 2019 Alley All New Festival and 2022 world premiere) returns with another prescient play. There’s a deadly plague out there yet Sugar, a Dominican-American escort from the Bronx, seems immune. When she goes to see Dr. Wesley Pennington, a Black doctor who tries to stay above it all, she is floored to find that her blood might be the key to saving the world. The two move into the hastily built research compound of a pharmaceutical giant and power dynamics change in this timely socio-political thriller written prior to the Covid pandemic.
The Bleeding Class is approximately 90 minutes long.
The Bleeding Class contains Language, Sexual Situations, Violence and some discussions of racism as Chisa Hutchinson pens an imaginative socio-political thriller inspired by the world she sees. To learn more about the content of this show, please visit our content advisory page.
