At the June meeting of the BAT Script Club, the Club will be discussing American Son by Christopher Demos-Brown.

Dramatically, American Son is strong in its depiction of parental angst, especially the all-consuming fear that comes with being mother to a black child in a country that constantly makes them a target.

American Son is not a subtle play; it barely feels like a play at all. With its unrelentingly high tension on every level — maternal, marital, societal — it’s more like a slice of a nightmare, with few contours despite its surprises. Its abrupt ending doesn’t even offer a chance for catharsis; it just spits you out.

Hope to see you at BAT’s Script Club.
