New in 2018 Set in a Florida police station, Kendra and Scott, a separated, interracial couple, reunite as they grapple with the disappearance of their teenage son in this Broadway premiere drama. Begins October 6th.
From the producers: Do you know where your children are? A Florida police station in the middle of the night; a mother searching for her missing teenage son. "American Son" is a gripping tale of two parents caught in our national divide, with their worst fears hanging in the balance.
"American Son" received its world premiere at Barrington Stage Company in 2016 after winning the Laurents/Hatcher Award for Best New Play by an Emerging Playwright. A second production was mounted in 2017 at New Jersey's George Street Playhouse. The play marks playwright Christopher Demos-Brown's Broadway debut. Here's a promo clip from the George Street Playhouse production:
"American Son" features Emmy Award nominee Kerry Washington (David Mamet's "Race," ABC’s "Scandal"), Steven Pasquale ("Junk," "The Bridges of Madison County") and Tony Nominee Jeremy Jordan ("Newsies," CW's "Supergirl"). Tony winner Kenny Leon ("Children of a Lesser God," "A Raisin in the Sun") directs.
