The Highwaymen is a thought-provoking new play written by Josh Wilder and directed by Jamil Jude. Catch it at the History Theatre now through February 26. Tickets: $15-40.
“1956. The construction of Interstate 94 destroyed the thriving, tight-knit Rondo neighborhood where homes, stores and businesses once stood. The new freeway tore through the heart of St. Paul’s largest African-American community. This powerful new drama explores the dynamics surrounding the decision-making process that shattered the lives of thousands of middle-class residents and changed the face of St. Paul forever.”
The theater notes that there is adult language in this play, and parental discretion advised for children under 16.
Afterthoughts. Free for ticketed patrons. A lively post show talk after Sunday matinees.
