A revolutionary, multicultural play about the effects of systemic racism on two Black American teens, The Great Khan is a National New Play Network rolling world premiere. Jayden is a high schooler struggling with what he wants to be, a nerd who loves video games and fantasy, or a strong man who doesn’t need to fear anyone. Ant is a young woman rediscovering herself after tragedy and trying to define herself against society’s expectations. Gao Ming is a precocious YouTuber, committed to helping people fully express their authentic selves. When Jayden looks for answers from his most recent homework assignment, the friends’ lives are upended by the arrival of Genghis Khan, the Great Khan himself.
