In the distant present, on a housing project in Louisiana lives Oya, a young girl, soon to be woman. Foregoing her dreams of a college education and an athletic career to look after her dying mother, she finds herself increasingly trapped between the choices available to her. In the Red and Brown Water is Tarell Alvin McCraney’s highly-acclaimed modern retelling of Federico Garcia Lorca’s Yerma, that places a woman between familial duty and unfulfilled dreams.
