THE AFRICAN COMPANY PRESENTS RICHARD III

By Carlyle Brown | Directed by Kenna Moore

Monday, March 9th at 7:30 PM

Le Petit Theatre | 616 Saint Peter Street | New Orleans, LA 70116

Forty years before the Civil War, the African Grove Theatre Troupe in New York sets about staging a production of Richard III. But when a major (and white) New York company scores a big name star to be featured in their own production of Richard, they are determined to shut down the African company's show at any cost. 

This event is a complimentary staged reading open to the public. RSVPs are appreciated but not required.

The reading will run approximately one hour and 30 minutes and will be followed by a post-reading discussion.

This reading's post-show discussion will be faciliated by Congo Square scholar and author Freddi Williams Evans.
