The Great Khan

Showing:   March 03 - 27, 2022
Where: Lyceum Space

Playwright: Michael Gene Sullivan

This Rolling World Premiere was featured in San Diego REP’s 2021 Black Voices Reading Series

By Michael Gene Sullivan
Directed by Jess McLeod

Jayden, an African American teenager, just wants to be his game-playing, nerdy self. But after he saves a girl, Ant, from a sexual assault, he and his mother are forced to move to keep him safe from the boys who attacked her. While Jayden debates with himself if he should toughen up, Ant tries to reject the tough Black girl persona she has adopted. Both are trying to figure out how to define themselves in a culture that insists on seeing them as forever dangerous. Oh, and then Genghis Khan shows up.

“As one of the most active political playwrights in the country, Michael Gene Sullivan is certainly a voice you should know." – Kent Nicholson, Playwright's Horizons


The Great Khan is produced at San Diego Repertory Theatre as part of a National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere.
