Pultizer Prize Nominated Play Bulrusher at New Village Arts


Aired 4/19/09

Maureen Cavanaugh:    A northern California farming community so isolated that it started and maintained its own language for more than 50 years. Now that's a setting ripe with possibilities for a playwright , especially a playwright who is fascinated with the subjects of language and identity.  Eisa Davis is such a playwright. The story she set in that community is called Bulrusher and it was a finalist for the 2007 Pulitzer Prize. 

Bulrusher is now being performed in Carlsbad at the New Village Arts Theater:



  • Eisa Davis is a playwright, actor, singer and songwriter.  She wrote the play Bulrusher, currently on stage at New Village Arts. 


  • Kristianne Kurner is directing this production of Bulrusher.  She's also the Executive Artistic Director at New Village Arts.
  • Jasmine Allen plays the lead character of Bulrusher.  
  • Tim Parker plays the character of Boy.
