Developing Future Classics
As part of our mission to tell the stories of women, people of color, and those with physical disabilities, Griot Theatre presents An Accident - based on real events in the life of playwright Lydia Stryk.

A woman is run over and critically injured: the driver appears at her bedside. There are encounters in life that take you somewhere you've never been and never meant to go.
