About 'Bov Water:
In this powerful world premiere play by Dartmouth alumnae Celeste Jennings (Citrus), four generations of Black women breathe and bathe in a past that’s both intentionally and accidentally forgotten. Challenging and discovering their own narratives from the Civil War to the 1960s to modern-day America, these strong and inquisitive souls wrestle to unearth a family’s past and build resilience for the future. ‘Bov Water is a touching, vital, and intensely human poetic journey that aims to answer how do you define yourself if you don’t know your family’s history?
