Winner of the prestigious Laurents/Hatcher Foundation Award, American Son opened the 2018-19 Broadway season with a jolt of electricity. This explosive drama examines our nation’s racial divide through the eyes of an estranged, interracial couple who rush to the police station when their son`s car has been pulled over. Over the course of an evening, the couple’s disparate backgrounds collide in this gripping tale about who we are as a nation.
