Virtual: Rarely staged since its debut in 1969, Childress’ masterwork examines the intersection of race, gender and class in Civil-Rights-Era America. “For a time I thought I was about to move into another world, the so-called ‘integrated’ world … but that’s a lie.” With race riots outside his apartment in 1964 Harlem, artist and sophisticate Bill Jameson paints his view of Black womanhood. While searching for his final model, a woman he describes as “as close to the bottom as you can get,” he thinks he has found a match in Tommy. But Tommy soon tests his toxic assumptions. Rarely staged since its debut in 1969, Alice Childress’ masterwork examines the intersection of race, gender and class in Civil-Rights-Era America. Run time: 90 minutes, with a talk back and designer presentations.
