A breathtaking new story of forbidden love in 1950’s Jim Crow Texas

Timeless in its telling, this beautiful new play of star-crossed lovers will sweep you away with its spellbinding story and complex characters. In Houston at the height of Jim Crow, segregation pervades society all the way through to the underground and illegal gay bar scene. One night, a chance encounter between Russell, a local at the blacks-only Gold Room, and Tom, from the whites-only Red Room, leads to a forbidden romance that could destroy them both. On the Grounds of Belonging is a rousing new work which announces the arrival of a bold American writer.
