- 2 Males, 5 Females; 1 African dancer (optional) (small roles are doubled).
A hidden society fearful of the outside. A curious stranger accidentally pulled into their world. A romance that threatens their survival. Humans Remain is a celebration of love, familial responsibility, and honor.
A full-length drama script for a play by Robin Rice, Humans Remain challenges our views on cultural bias, assimilation, values, and assumptions. A well-meaning “foreigner” attempts to rescue the White Cliff Kinfolk – a mixed-race society isolated from civilization in the hills of New Jersey for over 200 years. Love. Death. History. Magic. Nature. Belief. All of these are played out on the stage. All but one character are mixed race, mainly African-American. One character is specified as African-American. The others are as diverse as desired.
Highly theatrical staging possible.
