DHS drama takes on small-town racism

Many movies and television shows have been ripped from the headlines.

The Davis High School drama department follows suit with its spring play, “The Breedless Kitsch,” which premieres at 7 p.m. Friday in the Brunelle Performance Hall on the DHS campus.

The play was written by DHS and UC Davis graduate Ben Moroski and addresses racism in a city like Davis. Plotwise, its story deals with an incident where a noose is hung at the local high school after a black sophomore quarterback is given the start ahead of a white senior, and the events that follow. The play was written in response to a real-life incident where a noose was hung from a goalpost at the DHS football field in June 2012.
