A black man imbued with the gift of time travel searches for freedom in three American eras.

NKU’s Daryl Harris leads a cast of gifted black actors in an exploration of the dark corners of America’s historical relationship with race. SILAS, THE UNINVITED is a world premiere reading by lauded Cincinnati playwright Derek Snow, whose plays have been performed at Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati, the Know Theatre Cincinnati, and at venues around the country and internationally.

In a time when Americans are grappling with the deaths George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor, among so many others, playwright Snow finds sad parallels in current and historical violence towards black people.
