Ron, a young, gay African-American graduate student, trying to complete his thesis on Nat Turner’s slave rebellion, is feeling lost in his life and alienated from his family. When his 189-year-old great-great-grandfather TJ takes him back in time to meet Turner in the flesh, both men find answers they never expected. The play deals with themes of racial identity and sexuality, as Ron comes to face his ancestors’ history, and his own personal identity. A raucous, wrenching story, part “Roots”, part “The Wizard of Oz”, part “In Living Color”, and all Robert O’Hara, Insurrection: Holding History will change how you see the past, and just maybe yourself as well.
