Welcome to Braggsville @ Book-It Repertory Theater
Jun 7 – Jul 2 all-day

To close out their 27th season, Book-It presents a darkly funny, world-premiere adaptation of Welcome to Braggsville, a novel by T. Geronimo Johnson. When good ol’ boy D’aron Davenport lets it slip that his hometown in Georgia hosts an annual Civil War reenactment, his new friends at UC Berkeley plan to stage a protest in the form of a “performative intervention.” Armed with youthful exuberance and misguided ideas of the South, the intervention has devastating consequences.
