About the Show

Servants by day, the African Company, a company of free black actors passionate about creating art out of their own experience, rehearse Shakespeare’s Richard III by night. Bu when the Company dares to open its show the same time that New York City’s premiere theater opens its own Richard III, things go awry and the racial tensions of 1821 America are felt.
