Christina M. Ham’s sweeping new drama is inspired by one of the most notorious events in US history. Part one of Scapegoat takes place in Elaine, Arkansas in 1919, when Black sharecroppers Effie and Virgil while attempting to organize with others for better wages are met with violence by white residents, leading to one of the deadliest racial confrontations in American history. In part two of the play, two interracial couples accidently stumble upon present day Elaine only to discover the effects of history in their “post-racial” world.
Scapegoat is directed by Marion McClinton and stars Jennifer Blagen, Dan Hopman, James A. Williams and Regina Marie Williams.
