Directed by Maggie Lally

A racially charged shooting on Long Island, NY triggers not only charges and a trial, but also the apparent “re-surfacing” of Nig and Jig, African American and Irish American figures respectively, who are locked in a seemingly never-ending struggle for agency, place, and point of view in America’s history and psyche.

Sponsored by the Department of English, Department of Theatre, University Diversity Committee, Collaboration Project, Racial Justice Alliance and AUPAC.
