The African Company Presents Richard III Opens Tonight
In New York circa 1821, the African Company is forced to relocate its production of Richard III after staunch competition with a rival white theater company prompts authorities to shut down their African Grove stage. In a retelling of the history of America's first African-American theater company, playwright Carlyle Brown's The African Company Presents Richard III highlights what director Caroline Jackson Smith, associate professor of theater and dance and African-American studies, describes as "the tension of Afrocentric and Eurocentric cultures colliding to create American performance traditions." The play runs Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in Hall Auditorium.
