Directed by Phillip Royston Burgess

In Amiri Baraka's Dutchman, nationalism is illuminated in an undeniable proclamation to what it means to identify oneself as an African American during the Civil Rights Movement and how that stills rings true today.

Dutchman is an emotionally-charged and highly-symbolic version of the Adam and Eve story, wherein a naive, young, middle-class Black man is seduced by an insane and calculating White temptress.  Their meeting, flirtation, intellectual discourse and sexual "dance" lead to a struggle for life and death.  The emotionally-taut, verbal fencing between Clay and Lula spirals irrevocably to the symbolic act of violence that will apparently repeat itself over and over again. Dutchman was the winner of 1964 Obie Award for Best American Play.

CONTENT ADVISORY:  This play contains mature themes and adult language. The content may not be suitable for young children.

In Levy Lee Simon's The Last Revolutionary, Mac Perkins, who is a "revolutionary," is plotting to put a stop anti-Obama sentiment from the far right and racist groups when an "ex-revolutionary" friend, Jack Armstrong, shows up--after more than ten years--and challenges Mac about his use of 1970's tactics in today's world. They hash out political ideas and ideology as Jack tries to convince Mac that is methods are archaic and and old fashioned.  

The story is poignant, funny, very relevant, and shows an intimate look into the lives of two friends who challenge each other about their philosophies of living in today's world as a Black man. But, as the dramatic and humorous interchange evolves between these two old friends--whose lives have taken very different paths--secrets are exposed about both men that lead to a life and death confrontation.
