Dread Scott

Revolutionary artist Dread Scott has been creating inspiring, beautiful and provocative works of art for decades. Some of his works, including A MAN WAS LYNCHED BY POLICE YESTERDAY, were recently included in a show called For Freedoms at the Jack Shainman Gallery in New York. He describes it as an updated version of a flag that the NAACP used to hang from their national headquarters in New York whenever someone was lynched, "A MAN WAS LYNCHED YESTERDAY." In the late 1920s and early '30s they would hang this from their headquarters as part of their anti-lynching campaign.


Kingdom of Earth

This rarely seen, late work of Tennessee Williams is the savage,sexually-charged and brutally funny story of three outcasts trapped in an isolated, once elegant Mississippi farmhouse by an encroaching flood. Written in the late 1960s, its metaphorical and taboo themes of race, gender and human survival are still just as sharp today. 

We'll sit down with the three actors, Susan Priver, Daniel Felix de Weldon and Brian Burke. Playing at the Odyssey Theatre
