Bourbon at the Border is an immensely important and timely drama. Howard University students May and Charlie joined hundreds of other Americans in Mississippi in the summer of 1964 for a voter registration drive. Years later, they are still searching for a way back from the damage that was done to them during that long ago “Freedom Summer.”


Admission to this theatrical production is free with seating assigned at the door on a first-come, first-seated basis. MASKS ARE REQUIRED.


Bourbon at the Border includes strong language, racial slurs, and descriptions of physical and sexual violence.
