Black Thought

comment
Of the 10 works chosen as part of this year's R. Joyce Whitley ArenaFest Festival of New Plays, it's tonight's pair that truly embodies the spirit of the annual two-week program. The festival began 14 years ago as a forum for new and established playwrights to consider the African American experience. Tonight's bill includes All Things Being Equal — about a black teacher, a Jewish teacher, and a job that stands between them — and The Guest at Central Park West, in which a homeless drifter turns up at the apartment of a pair of married professors. After the plays are read, there'll be a post-performance discussion and Q&A session with the writers.
