Family, heritage, race and love are at the heart of this 2007 Pulitzer Prize finalist play by Eisa Davis. Set in 1955 Mendocino, a multiracial girl Bulrusher (named for cattails) grows up in a mostly white logging town. An orphan, Bulrusher is gifted with clairvoyance yet unable to "see" her true family. Her world opens up when a young black girl from Alabama arrives. Described as "powerful, poetic, deep," Bulrusher is directed by Harry Waters Jr. of "Angels in America" and "Back to the Future" fame. Audiences seated on stage for an immersive experience, with rain showers and river feature.
