ABOUT THE SHOW | 1821, New York. While slavery still ravages a divided nation, Billy Brown's African Company has mounted a financial and critical success with its all-black production of Shakespeare's Richard III. But the all-white Park Theatre next door is mounting its own production and they will stop at nothing to subdue their increasingly popular competition.
Based on the little known true history of
America's first black theatre company, Carlyle
Brown eloquently tells the story of a small
group of actors prepared to stand up and
take center stage whatever the cost.
