Theater Alliance: Day of Absence Industry Night

October 21 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

INDUSTRY NIGHT

Day of Absence

by Douglas Turner Ward

Directed by Raymond O. Caldwell and Angelisa Gillyard

It’s another morning in another country fried southern town. As citizens begin to stir, they are forced to deal with a shocking discovery that sends the town topsy turvy. Reclaiming the complexity and depth of the African-American population, Ward’s 1965 script and this imaginative retelling is a comedic and pointed commentary on systemic racism that still bears relevance today. Douglas Turner Ward’s Day of Absence caps off an evening of song, dance, and other performative delights that are sure to tickle and titillate the senses.
