Event Details

‘Bov Water is a poetic journey following four generations of Black women wrestling to unearth a family’s past and build resilience for the future. After the civil war, a mother and a daughter search for family members who were sold or lost. In 1964, two friends lose touch when one abruptly moves North to avoid trouble. In the mid 70s, another pair of friends struggle to connect when one of them moves away to college and life changes both of them. Today, an artist tries to piece together her family’s stories through the silence. How can you honor your family’s history if you don’t know much about it?

‘Bov Water is a stirring world premiere play by Dartmouth alumnae Celeste Jennings, playwright of Citrus presented in 2020 at Northern Stage.

Playing January 25 – February 12.
