The original play I Am This Place envisions a legacy and history of resistance, survival, loss, and remembrance which may have influenced Crispus Attucks, the African and Indigenous man who was the first to fall during the Boston Massacre.
Two actors, Maria Hendricks and Dominic Carter, take on nine characters in this compelling drama which spans over 100 years, weaving together historical fact with artistic insight. Playwright Miranda ADEkoje imagines what the lives of Crispus Attucks’s parents and ancestors might have been like as Black and Indigenous people living in a time of war and slavery in New England.
Produced in partnership with Plays in Place.
