"Black Girl, Interrupted"
OCTOBER 24-27 |

TEXAS TECH MAEDGEN THEATRE
Tough and dedicated New York Times reporter Riley Jones is chasing the story of Sasha Green, a soldier whose brutal death has been covered up by the military. As she gets closer to the disturbing truth, Riley must question her motives for telling Sasha's story and confront her own painful past, including her fraught relationship with her soon-to-be ex-husband and the price she has paid to pursue justice for others.
A timely and compelling new drama from Texas Tech PhD student LyaNisha Gonzalez, Black Girl, Interrupted investigates whose story gets lost when we focus on a woman's death rather than her life.
