By George C. Wolfe

Directed by TBD

Presented on the Main Stage

Serving as an elaborate satire of the prominent themes and identities of African American culture, the play is set in a fictional museum where iconic African American figures are kept for public consumption. Told in a series of eleven sketches, each segment centers on a different “exhibit” in the museum, and serves as a small one-person play or monologue. Exploring themes of racism, stereotypes, intra-community conflicts in black culture, and the ongoing legacy of slavery and segregation, The Colored Museum received overwhelming critical  praise for its provocative subject matter and in-depth exploration of the African American theatrical and cultural past.
