Alice Childress' humorous yet heartbreaking look at race follows a cast of black and white actors attempting to mount a production of a "progressive" new show on Broadway in the 1950s. The play-within-the-play, an anti-lynching drama set in the South, marks the first opportunity for gifted black actress Wiletta Mayer to break through on Broadway -- but only if she can quiet her conscience when she realizes that the play may actually perpetuate the very stereotypes it's supposed to protest. This "scathingly funny, wise and extraordinary" ("Washington Post") satire was written in 1955 at the dawn of the civil rights movement by Childress, and she became the first African-American woman to receive a professional production in New York. Enjoy this insightful exploration into race relations under the stars at the Will Geer Theatricum Botanicum in Topanga. [less-]
