Set in redwood country north of San Francisco in 1955, a multiracial girl grows up in a predominantly white town whose residents pepper their speech with the historical dialect of Boontling. Found floating in a basket on the river as an infant, Bulrusher is an orphan with a gift for clairvoyance that makes her feel like a stranger even amongst the strange: the taciturn schoolteacher who adopted her, the madam who runs her brothel with a fierce discipline, the logger with a zest for horses and women, and the guitar-slinging boy who is after Bulrusher's heart. Just when she thought her world might close in on her, she discovers an entirely new sense of self when a black girl from Alabama comes to town. Passionate, lyrical, and chock full of down-home humor, this play is an unforgettable experience by a new, thrilling voice.

"[Davis] tickles the ears of her listeners...moving scenes on the banks of the pebble-strewn river...feel utterly true." -The New York Times

"Davis explores her themes in unexpected and evocative ways...The still waters of Bulrusher turn out to run pretty deep."
-The San Francisco Chronicle
