Quotes & Highlights
“…intricate and highly-theatrical new work.” —BroadwayWorld.com
Read an interview with playwright Julie Hébert.
By Julie Hébert • Directed by Andrea J. Dymond
Julie Hébert’s provoking and powerful new play depicts three generations divided by race, culture, time, and place. A divorced chef, Leo, is caring for his aging mother with the help of his college-age daughter when Didi, a southern white woman, barges into their lives with a provocative cache of love letters. Written by her deceased father, the letters reveal a compelling family secret. In search of the truth, Leo must sift through the addled memories of his mother and surprising and contradictory stories. Eloquently melding realism and poetry, Tree fosters a deep, true conversation between people who are linked in many ways, but separated by race.
