Insurrection has been described as The Wizard of Oz meets Roots. As Ron struggles to finish his dissertation on Nat Turner's rebellion,TJ (Ron's 189-year-old great-great grandfather) takes Ron on a journey back in time to 1831, the year Nat Turner led his infamous rebellion in South Hampton County, Virginia. Mutha Wit accompanies them on this mystical journey as she translates for TJ, who can neither speak or move anything but his left eye and the middle toe of his right foot. When they arrive in the deep, deep, dark South, the characters take on one of the most appalling times in history. They see outrageous incidents unfold and come to realizations that may or may not satisfy them on why they travelled back in time in the first place. Insurrection is a work unafraid to utterly confound most traditional narrative assumptions, and in a surreal version of history also manages to address contemporary police violence against African-Americans, to explore who has the right to tell whose story, to look critically at attitudes toward sexuality, gender and intolerance, and to explore how different generations adhere to different rules.
Actors should prepare two contemporary contrasting monologues and come prepared to cold read.
