Playwrights Horizons presents The Movement Theatre Company’s production
What to Send Up When It Goes Down is a play, a ritual, and a home-going celebration that bears witness to the physical and spiritual deaths of Black people as a result of racist violence. Setting out to disrupt the pervasiveness of anti-blackness and acknowledge the resilience of Black people throughout history, Aleshea Harris’s acclaimed, groundbreaking play blurs the boundaries between actors and audiences, offering a space for catharsis, discussion, reflection, and healing.
Please note: What to Send Up When It Goes Down is a special Redux Series production, presented in addition to our 2020/21 season. Season package holders receive an exclusive discount to this production, which is accessible by logging into your account.
