An Echo in the Bone


Set in Jamaica in 1937, this non-naturalistic play explores the history of black people and their oppression. It starts with a nine nights ceremony for the death of its central character, Crew. This traditional ritual impels the characters to re-enact their history and the role played by slavery, taking them on a slave ship and to an auction through a series of flashbacks that awake a long and deep 'echo in the bone'.
