This Pulitzer Prize-winning drama by Charles Gordone follows a black bartender in New York City who attempts to outwit a white mobster syndicate. Inspired by his own time as a bartender in Greenwich Village, Gordone’s play investigates racial tensions and the myth of success during the Civil Rights era.

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