Ifa Bayeza’s
BENEVOLENCE (World Premiere)
Directed by Talvin Wilks

A small, segregated town is about to be turned upside down as fate brings a young boy from Chicago to a candy counter in Money, Mississippi. The second play in Ifa Bayeza’s powerful trilogy about Emmett Till, benevolence is a haunting, unforgettable portrait of the collateral damage surrounding a case that gained international attention and sparked the Civil Rights Movement. Penumbra produced Bayeza’s award-winning The Ballad of Emmett Till in 2014 to critical acclaim. Join us for this second chapter as we open ritual space to remember and reconnect our hearts with our history in service of a better tomorrow.
