Join us at Arena Stage for "Sovereignty," Mary Kathryn Nagle’s daring new work about Sarah Ridge Polson, a young Cherokee lawyer fighting to restore her Nation’s jurisdiction and defend the constitutionality of the 2013 Violence Against Women Act in the U.S. Supreme Court. With shadows stretching from 1830s Cherokee Nation (now present-day Georgia) and Andrew Jackson’s White House to the Cherokee Nation in present-day Oklahoma, Sovereignty asks how high the flames of anger can rise before they ultimately consume the truth.

A discussion with the playwright will follow the show.
