    Chasing Mehserle

    From Intersection’s acclaimed resident theatre company Campo Santo and The Living Word Project (the resident theater company of Youth Speaks) comes the world premiere of Chinaka Hodge’s Chasing Mehserle.

    Chasing Mehserle begins where Chinaka Hodge’s first critically acclaimed play, Mirrors in Every Corner left off. All of the characters of a Black/multi-racial family in Oakland return in the second installment to consider the infamous murder of East Oakland resident Oscar Grant. As a way of investigating communal response to the death of Oscar Grant, the playwright examines race, glass, gender, and privilege through the lens of main character, Watts. Directed by Marc Bamuthi Joseph, and developed, created and produced by The Living Word Project and Campo Santo, the play is slated to premier in May 2014 at Intersection for the Arts (May 8-24) and Z Space (May 29-31) in San Francisco before a national tour.
