In Collaboration with Heralds of Hope Theater
by Tennesse Williams
directed by Barry Feinstein
November 4 – 27 2011
Quote from City Paper’s rave review:
With its mixed-race cast, this production interrogates not only the idealized American family but the American South. That Big Daddy is played by an actor who is black, and that he is “the Delta’s biggest cotton planter” in what is ostensibly the era of Jim Crow, invests an added layer of significance to his rise from peon to patriarch and a sense of urgency to his insistence on self-preservation.
Director Barry Feinstein and set designer Prince NO-RA make such effective use of the black-box space at Load of Fun Theater that it seems like the only way the play should be staged.
