The Rebecca Play

(Developed in Charleston)

Written by Jon Adam Ross

Directed by Chantal Pavageaux

Performances at The Theater at the 14th St Y May 1-19 2018


Starring Jon Adam Ross and Darian Dauchan


The matriarch Rebecca played favorites among her sons, Esau and Jacob, believing one to be the rightful heir. This play marries that narrative to the story of the city of Charleston. The city becomes a mother playing favorites among her children, White and Black. Through a series of scenes and monologues, two actors explore rivalry, racism and how each brother reacts when the roles are reversed.
