     “Emergency must be the most important new American drama since Angels in America.” – NYTHEATRE.COM

     “Funnier than most serious plays and vastly smarter than most funny plays…Its premise is inspired.”     – NEW YORK MAGAZINE

    “Obie-winning Emergency is 80 minutes of frenetic energy.” – VARIETY.COM

    ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents Emergency. A slave ship has just mysteriously emerged in front of the Statue of Liberty, sending New York City into a whirl of emotion and self-examination. Daniel Beaty portrays a cast of over 25 characters in this explosive and funny tour-de-force featuring slam poetry, multi-character transformation and song. Seen through the lens of a single family at the center of the maelstrom, Beaty delightfully teases out his tale with the colorful commentary of neighbors and bystanders. Through their responses to this surreal happening and their varied testimonies on identity and personal freedom, Emergency weaves a stirring commentary on what it is to be human and the longing to be free.
