THE SLAVE by Amiri Baraka
Mixed Magic Theatre (MMT) is thrilled to present THE SLAVE, a follow-up to Amiri Baraka's award-winning play DUTCHMAN, both of which will be offered in repertory to open the MMT season.
Directed by Ricardo Pitts-Wiley, THE SLAVE is set in a well-appointed apartment during a time of Black uprising and revolt, the action of the play revolves around the hostile encounter between the revolutionary leader Walker Vessels (Frederick Douglas), his ex-wife Grace Easley (Melanie Stone), and her husband Brad (Terry Shea). As the explosions shake the building to its foundation and the victory of the revolution Vessels helped to foment seems imminent, the time has come to face the painful, complicated past and an uncertain future. At stake: the lives of Walker's and Grace's children.
