Powers New Voices Festival - The Red and the Black


By Keelay Gipson
Directed by Steve H. Broadnax III

Sunday, April 10 at 4:00 p.m.

You know that thing new couples do? Where they invite their other coupled friends to a weekend away to show off their new relationship? This play takes place in the Berkshires during one such weekend. And what was supposed to be a ritualistic coming together of friends spirals into something much different by the weekend’s end. A meditation on the rise of New Black Conservatism, The Red and the Black toys with the notion that all skinfolk ain’t kinfolk.

A line for standby seating will form 30 minutes before each performance of the Powers New Voices Festival.  Based on ticket-holder attendance, those standing in the standby line may be seated.  Seating is based on seat availability and is not guaranteed.  Latecomers with tickets are also not guaranteed admittance.

Major funding for the Powers New Voices Festival is provided by the Powers New Works Fund. The Old Globe’s New Voices Play Development Program is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts. The Old Globe’s Community Voices program is supported by Subaru of El Cajon and The Ann Davies Fund for Teaching Artists.

Financial support of The Old Globe is provided by The City of San Diego. The Theodor and Audrey Geisel Fund provides leadership support for The Old Globe’s year-round activities.
