What is a black play? Does it exist? Can it be free from whiteness as a central motivating force?
Join the conversation, as we dig up and dust off these ancient and vital questions, with the help of some emerging theatrical voices. The evening will consist of two short staged readings and a devised piece exploring the complexities of code-switching, mask-wearing, and story-selling in the American Theater.
