A bigoted father who is steeped in ignorance and his well educated son occupy a broken down bridge in a remote wooded area. The father is actually a manifestation of the son's memory as he recalls events that occurred on the day Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated. It becomes increasingly obvious that, despite the younger man's protests to the contrary, his father's prejudices are embedded in his subconscious. Structured as an extended monologue with occasional interruptions from the father, this analysis of the evolution of racism dramatizes its inherent roots in fear. Co winner of the 1998 Michael Kanin Award for Best Short Play.
