About the Production
Delta Rising follows the life stories of five New Yorkers originally from the Mississippi Delta — or whose families come from the Delta — and provides an artistically beautiful and historical testament to the diversity, vibrancy and complex history of the region and its reverberations through American culture.
A work in the Undesirable Elements series.
