Sleep Deprivation Chamber

By Adam P. Kennedy and Adrienne Kennedy

Paperback £10.99

There is limited availability of this title. Please enquire before placing your order.

A gripping examination of the conflicting realities of the black experience of twentieth-century America.

Winner of the 1996 Obie (Off-Broadway) Award for Best Play of the Year

A broken taillight leads to the brutal beating of a highly educated, middle-class black man by a policeman in suburban Virginia. The Kennedys interweave the trial of the victimised son (subsequently accused of assaulting the offending officer) with his mother's poignant letters of defense and remembrance.
