It’s April 2015 and the Baltimore Riots have only just begun. As the city fights to end police brutality, interracial couple Michael and Eva struggle to hold on to each other. Tensions mount over colonial attitudes, Freddie Gray’s controversial death and the beginnings of a monumental racial justice movement that sweeps the country. A new original play, Man Down, is a tender, sometimes uncomfortable, examination of love in the light of racial violence. Follow @ManDownthePlay #MyManDown.
