AMERICAN SON

 

3M, 1W

 

An estranged biracial couple must confront their

attitudes and biases after their son is detained by the

police following a traffic stop. Their disparate histories

and backgrounds inform their assumptions as they

try to find out what has happened to their son.

REVIEWS:

 

“[A] new play with a definite future. This is a rare chance

to be in on the first stage of a trip worth taking in a runaway

bus of reality.  Not yet a classic - it soon will be though." 

- Peter Bergman

"I reviewed 55 New Jersey plays in 2017 and my favorite was

'American Son,' which the George Street Playhouse in

New Brunswick presented."

- Jay Justig, NJ Arts

“…a pitch perfect world premiere.”   

- The Berkshire Eagle

“…searing production….It gets our highest recommendation.” 

- Berkshire On Stage and Screen

“…a timely, important work.”  

- Albany Times Union

“…a powerful, powerful play.” 

- Off-Script with Dan Dwyer
