To Be Young Gifted and Black

2 Male, 4 Female

Lorraine Hansberry & Robert Nemiroff Price: $8.95

A fast paced, powerful, touching and hilarious kaleidoscope of constantly shifting scenes, mood and images recreating the world of a great American woman and artist

Uniquely and boldly, the play dramatically weaves through her life experiences and the times that shaped her. The actors slip ingeniously into and out of a variety of challenging roles spanning her life and experiences to the ultimate confrontation when cancer strikes her

Includes brilliantly high lighted scenes from her plays as well as letters, diaries, poems and personal reminiscences. A major statement of the American Black experience

"An extraordinary achievement!... A whirl of probing, celebrating, hoping, laughing, despairing and moving on ... so brilliantly and tenderly alive" ~ N.Y. Times

"A milestone" ~ Time
