Deliver: Letters to the Motherland from a Foreign Body

By Liz Morgan
Directed by Axel Avin Jr.

A lyrical homage to immigrants and refugees, this play focuses on three characters who all find themselves feeling unsafe in the place they call home: a young black doctor practicing medicine in rural America; her patient, a pregnant woman with a dark past; and a mysterious foreign body that must journey to a new world.

Set to the musical heartbeat of an unborn child, Deliver is a piece with poetry and dance about crossing borders and boundaries in pursuit of survival. It depicts individuals who need the same the very same people that they fear. Finally, this work is an investigation of our shared labor and pain in this country that ultimately asks if we can ever be delivered from our shameful history.
