Dutchman/The Owl Answers

Event Type: Theatre
Facility: Theatre 2 (THR)
Presented By: School of Theatre
Two one-acts presented a full evening performance. Dutchman presents a stylized encounter that illustrates hatred between blacks and whites in America as well as the political and psychological conflicts facing black American men. The play won an Obie Award as best American Off-Broadway play of 1964. Set in a New York City subway car, the play involves Clay, a young, middle-class black man who is approached seductively by Lula, a white fellow passenger. Lula provokes Clay to anger and finally murders him.  In The Owl Answers, an African-American girl dreams of establishing a heritage and imagines she is applying to bury her father in Westminster Cathedral.

This show contains adult themes, strong language and some imagery that may be disturbing.
