The Great Khan
March 03 - 27, 2022
FEATURED IN OUR BLACK VOICES 2021 READING SERIES
By Michael Gene Sullivan
Jayden, an African American teenager, just wants to be his game-playing, nerdy self. But after he saves a girl, Ant, from a sexual assault, he and his mother are forced to move to keep him safe from the boys who attacked her. While Jayden debates with himself if he should toughen up, Ant tries to reject the tough Black girl persona she has adopted. Both are trying to figure out how to define themselves in a culture that insists on seeing them as forever dangerous. Oh, and then Genghis Khan shows up.
“As one of the most active political playwrights in the country, Michael Gene Sullivan is certainly a voice you should know." – Kent Nicholson, Playwright's Horizons
