When Day Comes
Created by Ricardo Khan and Sweet Honey In The Rock®
September 22 - October 10, 2021
The inaugural production of the Fall's Crossroads Festival Theatre is this world premiere live production that features members of the internationally acclaimed, a cappella sensation, Sweet Honey in the Rock®. Ricardo Khan has created this play with music in collaboration with the internationally famous singing group, as a spirited, poetic and music journey through our most recent times amid the people's uprisings against racial and social injustice in America, while facing the challenges of quarantine and COVID 19. Inspired by the poem, “The Hill We Climb” written by National Youth Poet Laureate Amanda Gorman, “When Day Comes” celebrates our “re-emergence”, while seeking a way to the light and our way forward as a nation, together.
