Casting Shadows: Performance Showcase
The Heritage Theater Ensemble, Yale's premier black undergraduate theater group, will partner with the Beinecke Library on a one-day showcase of scenes and monologues from plays featured in Casting Shadows: Integration on the American Stage, an exhibition on view at the library. The showcase includes scenes from Native Son by Richard Wright and Paul Green, In the Red and Brown Water by Yale School of Drama graduate Tarell Alvin McCraney, and other plays. The selected scenes demonstrate racial integration in American theater over the years as well as explore tensions that still exist in the performing arts.
Free and open to the public; limited seating.
