Written by Samm-Art Williams, actor and Tony Award-nominated playwright, the world premiere of Last in the Line bursts with drama and comedy, suspense and candor, laughter and regret, as the descendants of African-American slaveholders and their ancestors take center stage. Told in a stream of consciousness tenor, the play flashbacks from 2005 to the years 1845-75. The story tests loyalties and histories, and forces the modern day characters to examine their own identities, in relation to power, resources and "blood money."
