An important new voice for African-American theatre, Katori Hall explores the lives of black and often invisible Americans with vivid language, dynamic narratives and richly textured characterisation. This first collection of Katori Hall's dramatic works demonstrate her unique voice for the theatre, which is visceral, passionate and energetic.
Multi-award winning Katori Hall is from Memphis, Tennessee and has graduated from the American Rep Theatre Institute for Advanced Theatre Training at Harvard University and the Juilliard School's Lila Acheson Wallace playwriting program. Her plays include The Mountaintop, Hurt Village, Hoodoo Love, Remembrance, Saturday Night/Sunday Morning, and The Hope Well.
