A FANTASIA FOR TWO ACTORS ON RACE, MUSIC, AND FAMILY
by Monica Bauer
Directed by Glory Kadigan
Inspired by these real events: in 1969, in a segregated city in the American Midwest bursting with racial tension, a 14 year old black girl named Vivian was shot by a white cop, igniting one of the worst race riots in American history. No one knew anything about her, just her name, her age, and how she died. This fantasia for two actors gives Vivian a life, a family, a love of music, and a reason to live; the jazz legend who’s back in the neighborhood might be her real father. Can they find each other, before the city explodes?
