Spotlight Reading: Black Picture Show


Nov 11, 2019

Court’s Spotlight Reading Series aims to rediscover plays by writers of color largely missing from the American stage and absent from the traditional canon.

Black Picture Show by Bill Gunn

Dir. Ernest Perry, Jr.
Monday, November 11, 2019 at 6:30pm
Venue: Green Line Performing Arts Center, 329 E. Garfield Blvd. 

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.

Tickets will be made available at a later date.

The Spotlight Reading series is made possible in part by a grant from

The Joyce Foundation
