​This is a new play by Eisa Davis from the McCarter Theater Center in Princeton, N.J. about a teenage clairvoyant in 1950s California. In 1955, in the redwood country north of San Francisco, a multiracial girl grows up in a predominantly white town.
Bulrusher is an orphan with a gift for clairvoyance that makes her feel like a stranger even amongst the strange: the taciturn schoolteacher who adopted her, the madam who runs her brothel with a fierce discipline, the logger with a zest for horses and women, and the guitar-slinging boy who is after Bulrusher’s heart.
Kara Young stars with André Holland and Corey Stoll.
