A breathtaking new story of forbidden love in 1950’s Jim Crow Texas

Timeless in its telling, this stirring, universal story of star-crossed lovers will sweep you away. In Houston at the height of Jim Crow, segregation pervades society in every way, including the underground and illegal gay bar scene. One night a chance encounter between Russell, a local at the Blacks-only Gold Room, and Tom, from the whites-only Red Room, leads to a forbidden romance that could destroy them both. The spellbinding On the Grounds of Belonging signals the arrival of a bold new voice in the American theatre.
