Set to the hymns of Kanye West, TWENTYEIGHT is the story of six Black people separated from their homes in search of outer space. As they work to build their space craft, they live in constant fear of the sirens and what comes after the sirens are gone.

TWENTYEIGHT is inspired by the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement research that concluded in 2012 a Black person was murdered in the United States of America every 28 hours by a police officer or vigilante. TWENTYEIGHT is an afro-futuristic look at police brutality and racial violence in the United States. TWENTYEIGHT asks us, who will survive in the America we are building? And how do we hang on to hope when fear is on the only constant?

What does a wise woman do when she is left alone to grieve? What does a woman do when her identity has been stripped from her? When her body has become a weapon of death, incest, and fury, how does she find reprieve?

In Gale’s production, Salomé’s story begins after the death of John The Baptist. It starts when she has been left alone to grieve. On her own, Salomé identifies herself and learns what it means to have agency in her own body. She reconciles the truth about her past, present, and future.

What makes a great tragedy? High hopes? Hard luck? Harrowing, inevitable fate? Gale Theatre Co. set out to explore the secrets of tragedy and, along the way, made a play about it. Part hero’s journey and part never ending stair case, Wail asks the question, how do we bare our humanity—humanely?

When a young woman arrives in an unfamiliar and strange town, she can’t remember where she came from or how she got there. Time passes, seasons change, and she assumes a new life. As she learns more about the outside world, she also slowly discovers the truth of her past.
