Common Ground Revisited (Regional, Huntington Theatre Company, 2022) | Playbill

Common Ground Revisited



This riveting and intricately woven world premiere play brings Boston’s history to life in the 1960s and 70s, culminating in three families’ experiences in court-mandated busing. Diverse in both race and class, what can these families’ experiences tell us about our own time? Especially when Boston Public Schools are more segregated in 2021 than they were in 1974. Common Ground Revisited is inspired by Anthony Lukas’ landmark Pulitzer Prize winning book, which The New York Times praises as an “epic of American city life.”

Directed by Melia Bensussen

Featuring Marianna Bassham, Kadahj Bennett, Elle Borders, Matthew Bretschneider, Shanaé Burch, Amanda Collins, Stacy Fischer, Michael Kaye, Shannon Lamb, Karen MacDonald, Maurice Emmanuel Parent, Omar Robinson
