East New York, Brooklyn. Nina’s estranged father Kenyatta, a former Black revolutionary and political prisoner, reappears to obtain a coveted piece of her late Mother's legacy. While Kenyatta had visions of changing the world, his daughter became everything he feared. Now he’s at her mercy for his own redemption. This is a story about love, political action and one woman’s journey from a brutal existence to her own liberation.

Premiere Resident, Tony Award nominee and MacArthur Fellow Dominique Morisseau’s “smart and bracing” play “covers vast acres of social and political ground” (The New York Times). This new production re-teams director Steve H. Broadnax III both with Morisseau (he directed the world-and-NY premieres of Blood at the Root) and with Signature Theatre (where he staged the world premiere production of Katori Hall’s Pulitzer Prize-winning The Hot Wing King).

Sunset Baby highlights the collision of ideological conviction with the complexities of everyday survival in this story of a Black revolutionary’s fraught reunion with his adult daughter.
