Actors’ Theatre: The African Company Presents Richard III

July 15 @ 8:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 8:00 pm on Sunday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until July 18, 2021 12:00 am

While based on events prior to emancipation, The African Company Presents Richard III manages to evoke the dichotomy of Black Americans’ experiences throughout history: the constant battle to improve Black experience and culture while also battling for acceptance in a white-dominated power structure. A funny, bold portrayal of a group of people trying to escape in the poetry of a theatrical giant, The African Company also shows us how universal Shakespeare’s work is, and how it can inspire those who engage with it. This play is for anyone who fights for — no, demands the right to be seen; who understands that “classic” does not always mean white; who understands that smart, creative Black people will always overcome when pushed to the brink.
