× PlayGround in association with Lorraine Hansberry Theatre presents THE DIASPORA CYCLE by Genevieve Jessee, directed by Lauren Spencer, June 4-14, 2020 at Potrero Stage.
In the spirit of August Wilson’s The Pittsburgh Cycle, Genevieve Jessee’s THE DIASPORA CYCLE explores the African American experience through ten interwoven 10-minute plays depicting a saga of inextricable tradition, trauma and joy across continents and characters ranging from present-day United States to West Africa of a millennium past. Originally developed at the 2018 PlayGround Festival, the play is a PlayGround June Anne Baker Prize commission.
