Inspired by true events that led to a race riot in Omaha, Nebraska, My Occasion of Sin is set in a segregated city in 1969. Two men from different backgrounds: Luigi, an African American jazz drummer and George, a white music store owner who specializes in the accordion, are thrown together by fate, finding common ground in their love of music. At the same time, Mary Margaret and Vivian, two young girls from opposite sides of the city, drink in the new jazz scene for reasons of their own. Music unites and uplifts everyone around, but soon violence erupts, changing everyone’s lives forever. Location: Urban Stages, 259 West 30th Street
