OCT 26 - NOV 19

Sara is an enslaved rebel turned Union spy. Sandra is a tenured professor at a modern-day university. Despite living 160 years apart, their parallel struggles unite them across time. Celebrated American playwright, MacArthur Fellow, and two-time Tony Award nominee Dominique Morisseau (Ain’t Too Proud, Skeleton Crew) forges into brand new modes of storytelling in this breathtakingly fierce examination of history, race, and the women who stand on the frontlines of freedom, no matter the cost.

Reflection Series
Mosaic expands the concept of its Reflection Series, started in 2022 in conjunction with The Till Trilogy, to year-round programming that provides inroads for deep engagement with the themes of our plays. Through cross-disciplinary, citywide partnerships, Mosaic will produce an innovative series of concerts, readings, panels, and symposiums that spark meaningful reflection and foster conversation about our work.
For Confederates, each performance will be followed by powerful conversations with local Black women leaders, including Donna Rattley-Washington, Board Chair of the Atlas Performing Arts Center on Saturday, November 4 at 3 PM.


Donna has traversed a 20-year leadership journey spanning education, digital adoption, legislative affairs, management, and telecommunications. Donna is a former law partner, cable system General Manager for Washington, DC, and a telecommunications and non-profit executive. The digital divide in this country will be eradicated through public/private partnerships.


Mosaic is proud to announce its compelling 2022/23 Season, the first season selected and planned by Mosaic’s new Artistic Director, Reginald L. Douglas. The inspiring lineup aims to spark conversation across DC with a series of productions and special events that engage artists and community members around issues of and for the moment. “At Mosaic, we believe that theater at its best can be a catalyst for conversation and community building, and this season wonderfully carries forth that vision,” Douglas said. “It is my honor to build upon Mosaic’s foundation of producing theater that connects across cultures with this season of new work at all stages of development – from new play readings to world and DC premiere productions – all created by a diverse cadre of bold theater-makers. This next chapter for Mosaic Theater centers our core values of artistic excellence, empathy onstage and off, and joy, and celebrates theater’s unique ability to bring people together in conversation and collaboration. We cannot wait to welcome audiences to participate in this inspiring new journey with us.”
