Lewis is a sleepless mathematics professor, restless during a night of personal and professional crisis. He has inadvertently conjured his ancestors. As four generations prod him with their disquieting stories of slavery, Black Power and academia, he begins to understand what it means to be black, both then and now. Tanya Barfield’s play is sparked by abundant humor and woven through with original songs, in a poetic depiction of one man’s exploration of his personal and cultural history.
