Description

The 2014 winner of the Yale Drama Series

"The play does not have a tragic ending, though you will be certain that it must. But it is a tragic story. It is the tragedy of lives lived without hope of deliverance. . . . I will leave you to read the play and determine how on earth we get to a satisfying ending to this tragic tale of a woman without a chance. But that ending is the genius of Nabers's work, her faith in the ability of people with no chance, to find one."-Marsha Norman, from the Foreword

The year is 1979 and a serial killer in Atlanta is abducting and murdering young black children. Against a backdrop of fear and uncertainty, playwright Janine Nabers explores the emotional battleground where an African-American single mother wars with her teenage daughter, each coping in her own way with personal tragedy and loss. The volatility of their situation is intensified when a severely damaged and devastatingly handsome stranger becomes an integral part of their lives.

Serial Black Face is the seventh winner of the DC Horn Foundation/Yale Drama Series Prize, selected by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Marsha Norman. At once startling, engrossing, suspenseful, and exhilarating, Nabers's powerful drama employs a real-life nightmare, the Atlanta Child Murders of the late 1970s, to incisively examine human frailty and the prickly complexities of a mother-daughter relationship. A stunning theatrical work, both thoughtful and profoundly moving, Serial Black Face is richly deserving of this year's prize.
