American Son
By Christopher Demos-Brown

Staged Reading

An estranged bi-racial couple must confront their feelings about race and bias after their son is detained by the local police following a traffic stop incident. Their disparate backgrounds inform their assumptions as they try to find out what happened to their son.

Commissioned through the generosity of Roz and Charles Stuzin, this new work is a timely and important play on race in present-day America, and is part of BSC’s New Works Initiative.
