The African Company Presents Richard Iii  | Open: 11/12/09 Close: 11/12/09
1821, New York. While slavery still ravages a divided nation, Billy Brown's African Company has mounted a financial and critical success with its all-black production of Shakespeare's Richard III. But the all-white Park Theatre next door is mounting its own production and they will stop at nothing to subdue their increasingly popular competition.

Based on the little known true history of America's first black theatre company, Carlyle Brown eloquently tells the story of a small group of actors prepared to stand up and take center stage whatever the cost.
