MAY 16 - JUNE 9

1 hour 30 minutes

History meets hip-hop in this groundbreaking theatrical experience that explores the often-untold stories of enslaved people in the United States who sought freedom in Mexico, rather than looking north. Brian Quijada and Nygel D. Robinson use live-looping to create a musical in real-time, telling a unique story of the Underground Railroad that led south, highlighting the power of Black and Brown unity.
This world-premiere production received developmental support from Mosaic’s Catalyst new play development incubator.

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.”
