Winter Production: Blues for Mr. Charlie by Charles Gordone Directed by Sam Williams
A sensation in it's New York premiere produced by the Actor's Studio, this searing drama by one of America's leading writers retains all it's power to this day. Richard, a black man who is a former junkie returns to his parochial southern town and infuriates the denizens with his incendiary talk and actions. When he is killed by a poor, illiterate, white man, the murder, the eulogy, the trial and acquittal are presented in an abstract dramatic form of time, fury, and passion.
