Emergency & Through the Night, two plays by Danial Beaty


A Slave Ship emerges out of the Hudson River in front of the Statue of Liberty sending NYC into a frenzy. Emergency is an intricately woven, urgent, witty and moving exploration of our shared humanity and what it means to be free. An explosive play where rhythm, rhyme and remembrance rise.

"Daniel Beaty is a name to remember, as is this vivid portrait of the African- American experience in present day New York."

"Daniel Beaty's explosive, affecting solo play Emergency may be the most important new American drama since Angels in America."

"A funny, passionate show." -Variety

Through the Night is a timely and inspiring story of possibility and hope, weaving together a unique blend of humor, poetry, music, and drama. It portrays a community of people who experience an unexpected epiphany on the same evening that changes their lives forever.

"May be one of the most uplifting and inspiring pieces of theater you'll see this year."

"Daniel Beaty's poetic solo show is a thing of beauty, wit, grit and piercing lyricism." -The New York Times
