The School of Theatre at Florida State University is  recently presented the 2007 Pulitzer Prize finalist, “Bulrusher” by Eisa Davis, a coming-of-age story set in 1950s Boonville, California.

Director L’Oreal Lampley explains the transformational quality of the story: “Each character experiences their own journey of birthing something new within themselves. As a result of the characters shedding their old ways, the community of Boonville is made new; the air is no longer so thick with toxicity that they cannot breathe. Instead, with the shifting of an old mindset comes the clarity needed to live a fuller life.”
