“Judgment Day” a solo show written and performed by Juliette Jeffers, directed by Denise Dowse, poses the question, “What if God was held responsible for all the injustices African Americans have had to endure since they were first brought to America as slaves in 1619?”
From Nat Turner to Alton Sterling, there has been much progress, but the struggle continues. Why has God allowed this to happen? “Judgment Day” is a powerful piece that questions God’s motives. It questions our faith. It is daring. It is raw. It is thought provoking. It infuses fictional characters with non-fictional and the past with the present. Ultimately, it leaves us to ponder free will, destiny and culpability.
