Two Plays by Adrienne Kennedy: Funnyhouse of a Negro and A Movie Star Has to Star in Black and White
8 PM (& 3 PM Sat.)
Directed by Alice Reagan
In these two short, intense plays, a young African American protagonist embarks on voyages of the mind through her life, seeking to reconcile her racial heritage with a culture that rewards whiteness. Kennedy, a seminal writer of the Black Arts Movement and later, uses hallucinatory imagery to depict the fractured mental landscapes of her leading women, who are both autobiographical and shockingly contemporary. With an entr’acte by Jackie Sibblies Drury, winner of the 2019 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
