Normalcy, press notes state, "takes a brutally honest look at transracial adoption, from the point of view of white prospective parents and their circle of family members and co-workers, to social workers and transracially adopted adults. Normalcy tackles themes of identity, race, terrorism, nationalism, manifest destiny, marriage and the media, all through the lens of one white, affluent couple’s attempt to make the hard choice – adopting a black child and the unexpected and unintended consequences that it has on their happy and complacent lives."
A series of talk-backs will be presented throughout the run, with the author, the producers and director, as well as experts in the field of this emotionally charged play.
Show times are Wednesday-Saturday at 7 PM.
