Director and social justice advocate Jess McLeod believes in art as a force for change. Known for her bold aesthetic, she gravitates towards risky, multi-dimensional work, challenging existing power structures and asking audiences to fearlessly examine what’s really happening around us. Michael Gene Sullivan’s The Great Khan is one of those plays that falls right into Jess’ sweet spot – a comedy with a sharp, socially-conscious heart.
Over the next several weeks, we will bring you a collection of contemporary performances from provocative artists and creatives, many who are Black, Indigenous, or People of Color.
