Wiletta Mayer is a talented Black actress who has been cast time and time again in stereotypical roles in second-rate plays. Now, she’s been given a role in an upcoming Broadway play about anti-lynching in America. But it might not be the dream role nor the enlightened play she was hoping for, given the director is a white man, but that doesn’t mean it won’t sell out.


Alice Childress’s comedic drama about the complications of race and art is as provoking as it is amusing.
