AMERICAN SON by Christopher Demos-Brown Directed by Greg Williams, Jr. Assistant Director: Andrew Vessel Stage Manager: Kayla Basco CAST: Kendra Ellis-Connor: Mercedes Wilson Scott Connor: Tim Sandifer Officer Paul Larkin: Austin Ventura Lt. John Stokes: Roger Ferrier AMERICAN SON is an American drama that raises important questions about the degree to which race, gender, and class play into police procedure, as well as how we deal with family relationships, love, loss, and identity. An estranged bi-racial couple must confront their feelings about race and bias after their son is detained by local police following a traffic stop incident. Their disparate histories and backgrounds inform their assumptions as they try to find out what happened to their son.
