Br'er Cotton

Lower Depth Theatre Ensemble presents BR'ER COTTON by Tearrance Arvelle Chisholm, a National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere. 

Lynchburg, Virginia. The former site of a thriving cotton mill is now an impoverished neighborhood. Deeply affected by all the recent killings of young black men like himself, Ruffrino, a 14 year old “militant,” incites riots at school and online. More and more at odds with his mother and grandfather, the boys’ anger grows beyond containment while the family home literally sinks into the cotton field, and no one seems to notice but him. 

BR'ER COTTON is produced at Lower Depth Theatre Ensemble as a part of a National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere. Other partnering theaters are Kitchen Dog Theater (TX) and Cleveland Public Theatre (OH). For more information please visit
