Playwright Christina Anderson brings us a poignant, transporting, and quietly subversive story of racial justice, political legacy, and household forgiveness. Janice’s childhood was steeped in her dad and mom’ activism as they fought for the mixing of public swimming swimming pools in Sixties Kansas and taught scores of Black youngsters to swim. However Janice later steps away from her dad and mom’ politics and begins her personal life and household far away-until she’s pressed into talking at a ceremony honoring her father. the ripple, the wave that carried me house is a shifting exploration of a household’s response to injustice and a daughter’s reckoning along with her political inheritance.
