“Daniel Beaty’s explosive, affecting solo play Emergency may be the most important new American drama since Angels in America.” – Mark Denton, NYTheatre.com
“Deeply felt…impossible not to cheer Beaty on his important mission.” – Los Angeles Times
“By the end, I was on my feet shouting like someone in church. I was so moved! Daniel Beaty is brilliant.” – Ruby Dee, Legend of Stage & Screen

A slave ship has emerged in front of the Statue of Liberty, sending New York City into a whirlwind of emotion and exploration. In this solo tour de force, featuring slam poetry, multi-character transformation and song, Daniel Beaty portrays a cast of 40 characters, including a homeless man, a scientist, a Republican business executive, a street vendor and an 11-year old boy from the projects. Through the characters’ individual responses to this surreal happening and their varied testimonies on identity and personal freedom, Emergency weaves together stirring commentary on what it is to be human and the longing to be free.
