Eric Conway of Morgan State University: Come out and support Theatre Morgan in Two One Act Plays Sunday, October 9, 2016, 3 PM

Eric Conway writes:

Last weekend, Theatre Morgan launched their 2016-2017 season with two one-act plays: Dutchman by Imanu Baraka and The Last Revolutionary by Levy Lee Simon.  

Let me encourage you to come out and enjoy an evening at the theatre!  In the words of Director Phillip Burgess:

“Dutchman and The Last Revolutionary tell the stories of the journey of the Black man in America Pre and Post signing of the Civil Rights Act in 1964.  In Dutchman, Clay is a bright-eyed college student ready to take on the world when he encounters Lula, a temptress who lures Clay into a classic game of cat and mouse that ultimately leads to Clay’s demise.  Fifty years later we see Mac and Jack in 2013 where they have enjoyed the “freedoms”of the signing of the Civil Rights act.  They both take clearly different paths to get to manhood but ultimately they realize they must unite and ”arm” themselves and fight TOGETHER, if they are to win the battle.”

I attended the opening night production and truly enjoyed both dramas.   This Sunday’s 3PM matinee performance is the last show.  Come out and support Theatre Morgan!
