PG- Drama/ Regional Premiere
By Calvin Alexander Ramsey
Directed By Shirley Jo Finney

Previews:  January 18, 19, 22
OPENING NIGHT: January 23, 2020
Runs:  January 18 – February 23, 2020

Inspired by Victor Hugo Green’s historical “The Negro Motorist Green Book,” the setting takes place during a weekend when the Davis’ are celebrating the arrival of Dr. W. E. B.  DuBois for a lecture.  The appearance of a white visitor, who turns out to be a Jewish Holocaust survivor, sets off a chain of events that shows that racism and anti-Semitism cannot be ignored.  This play is an investigation of the impact of Civil Rights on contemporary American issues.
