The Day the Waters Came
It’s summer 2005. Maya Marsalis takes you by the hand, sometimes the throat, and leads you through her landscape the day Hurricane Katrina came, the levees broke, the world watched and the US government did nothing. Go with her as she shows you how her world and that of thousands of African-American citizens changed forever, the day the waters came.

“Empowering, shocking, touching.” –Reviewsgate, UK
“An intense deeply though provoking play that lifts the lid on the personal devastation of hurricane Katrina… Though she has an audience of primarily teenagers and young adults in mind, Evans’ play has emotional hooks for everyone.” -Spoonfed, UK
