Black Picture Show (Spotlight Reading Series)

A citywide, yearlong event to rediscover classic plays by writers of color

A black writer’s mind is deteriorating as he nears death. His son, a filmmaker, wants to share the story of his last day on earth. Praised as “brilliant” by the New York Times when it ran in 1975, Black Picture Show tackles issues of artistic genius, corruption, and race with a provocative mixture of fact and fantasy.
