Berkeley Repertory Theater Docent Talk
about the play Bulrusher by Elisa Davis

 
Berkeley native Eisa Davis’ lyrical coming-of-age story follows a multiracial girl found as an infant floating in a basket on the Navarro River in Mendocino County. It’s 1955, and Bulrusher is 18 and restless, with a gift for clairvoyance that makes her feel like a stranger even amongst the eccentric, dialect speaking folks of her predominantly transparent enclave of Boonville. When a mysterious Black girl from Birmingham comes to town, Bulrusher discovers new facets of her identity — and uncovers her place in the world. A Pulitzer Prize finalist called “captivating and lushly poetic” by the LA TimesBulrusher is infused with rhythmic language, passion, and down-home humor
.

 

A Berkeley Repertory Theatre docent will talk about the play Bulrusher, at Berkeley Rep October 27 through December 3 and provide context for the play, covering topics that include the playwright, the play’s history and the production. 

 

The docent will be facilitating open audience discussion throughout the talk about experiences related to the play. 

 

Topics for discussion might include racial and sexual identity, performance, and morality.


Attendees do not need to have seen the play in order to enjoy the talk and discussion.
