A slave ship emerges in front of the Statue of Liberty sending New York City into a whirlwind of emotion and exploration in this explosive solo tour de force featuring slam poetry, song and a cast of 40 characters who all respond to the unexpected phenomenon.
"Funnier than most serious plays and vastly smarter than most funny plays,
Daniel Beaty's 'Emergency' is inspired."
- New York Magazine
"By the end, I was on my feet shouting like someone in church."
- Ruby Dee
