"An emotional roller coaster...a play for our times" - TAPinto.net 

Jamal`s mother and her estranged husband rush to the police station when their son`s car has been pulled over.  With no explanation forthcoming and emotions building, this highly-charged drama twists, turns and builds to an explosive conclusion.  American Son, recipient of the Laurents/Hatcher Foundation Award for a new play by an emerging playwright, is certain to challenge assumptions and ignite conversations regarding recent events and the racial divide in this country.
