Kentucky Repertory Theatre World Premiere Explores Issues of Race, Prejudice, Identity
Horse Cave, Ky – Kentucky Repertory Theatre at Horse Cave is giving the world premiere of Where I Come From, a play set in a New York City courtroom that explores issues of race, ethnicity, and prejudice. Playwright Eric Daniels got the inspiration for the play when he served as a juror in a federal civil trial in Manhattan. KRT executive director Christopher Carter Sanderson says the play is valuable because it can provoke conversation about touchy subjects. Kevin Willis has our story.
