Sunset Baby 

When: Sundays, 3 p.m., Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m. and Thursdays, 7 p.m. Continues through Jan. 31 2016
Price: $30
Kenyatta is a revered member of the Black Power movement who has sacrificed any sort of real relationship with his family in his pursuit of social justice. His estranged wife Ashanti has recently died, and Kenyatta heads home at last to collect the letters she wrote to him, but never sent, while he was imprisoned. The only obstacle in his path is his adult daughter Nina, who resents him for abandoning her and ruining her mother's life. In short order Kenyatta learns that his reputation and street cred mean nothing to a woman who wanted a father, not a figurehead. Dominic Morisseau's Sunset Baby is about fatherhood, personal politics and the value of family — even when you don't want one. The Black Rep presents Sunset Baby at 7 p.m. Thursday, 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 3 p.m. Sunday (January 15 to 31) at Washington University's Edison Theatre (6445 Forsyth Boulevard; 314-534-3810 or www.theblackrep.org). Tickets are $30.
