WORKSHOP/READING: "Waiting for Giovanni" by Jewelle Gomez

in collaboration with Harry Waters Jr.

11/11, 2-4pm

Join us for a staged reading of "Waiting for Giovanni" - a play that explores the impact of seminal artists on their immediate communities, particularly when they forgo predictable subject matter to delve into more personal terrain. Although playwright Jewelle Gomez's new play centers on an incident in the life of a celebrated civil rights-era writer in the year 1956, you don't need to be an activist or a writer to relate to the show.

Gomez began writing the play six years ago, when longtime collaborator Harry Waters Jr. invited her to write a piece about novelist James Baldwin. Thus began "Waiting for Giovanni," a piece that focuses on the publication of Baldwin's controversial 1950s novel "Giovanni's Room," about an American expatriate's romantic dalliance with a man he meets at a Parisian gay bar.

Gomez says that the story revolves around a moment in Baldwin's imagination during which he is second-guessing publishing his novel.
