About the Show

Ezekiel is a Black teenager with a secret that threatens to destroy his already broken home. He’s haunted by the ghosts of racism, homophobia, and toxic masculinity—the same ghosts that have plagued men in Georgia for generations, including his emotionally distant father. But when he discovers a trove of forbidden love letters among his late grandfather’s belongings, Ezekiel begins to believe that the only way to fight these multi-generational ghosts is to burn everything to the ground. THE MAGNOLIA BALLET is a Southern Gothic fable that melds high drama, dance, poetry, and spectacle to explore masculinity, racism, and the love between a queer kid and his father.

A National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere, this beautifully poetic magical new play will be produced in the same season in Indianapolis, Chicago, Detroit and Williamston, Michigan.

Masks are optional throughout the theatre at this time. See the full Covid safety policy here.
