When the sun rises, Nat Turner will face execution for leading the slave rebellion in Southampton, Virginia, August of 1831.  Ready to crossover, Turner reckons his life with Attorney Thomas Gray, who seeks to journal Turner’s account of the insurrection and if there will be more attacks.  Davis’ play is based on the true interactions of Thomas Gray and Turner prior to his execution.  This examination of America’s history with race reveals a disturbing resemblance to our present day.
