The Fountain Theatre presents the Los Angeles premiere of Tarell Alvin McCraney’s lusciously theatrical and boldly original new play. Lyrically weaving together elements of urban contemporary realism with West African mysticism, In the Red and Brown Water tells the tale of Oya, who can run faster than anyone—but not fast enough to escape her fate. Her journey from the promise of youth to the complicated yearnings of womanhood is joyous, raucous, raw and brazenly beautiful. “Experience the excited wonder that comes from witnessing something rare in the theater, a new, authentically original voice.” – The New York Times. Oct 13 – Dec 16; The Fountain Theatre, 5060 Fountain Avenue (at Normandie), Los Angeles, CA 90029; $15-$34; (323) 663-1525; www.FountainTheatre.com.
