The High Ground

The High Ground

Arena Stage
1101 Sixth Street, SW Washington

A Black man in an army uniform stands his ground atop Tulsa's Standpipe Hill, bearing witness to the destruction and desecration of Tulsa's Greenwood District - but other forces, both friendly and hostile, conspire to remove him. A play in conversation with Tulsa, Oklahoma's 1921 race massacre, The High Ground offers a complex portrait of what it means to bear witness, to resist and to move forward from devastation.
