Boston African-American playwrights

Playwright Suzan-Lori Parks

BOSTON — A recent article in The Boston Globe discusses the city’s rising number of African-American playwrights, actors, and performances that are hitting the stage at an increasing rate.

BOSTONGLOBE.COM REPORTS:

When “Broke-ology’’ opened last week at Lyric Stage Company, with an all-black cast performing a work by a black playwright under the guidance of a black director, the remarkable thing was how unremarkable it was.

Nathan Louis Jackson’s heartfelt family drama, directed by Benny Sato Ambush, was just the latest of numerous recent area productions that have showcased predominantly black casts in plays that explored aspects of the African-American experience while also tackling universal themes.

From playwrights, to actors, and theater troupes like the Up You Mighty Race Company, there seems to be a much stronger focus on African-American culture in Boston theater, and that cannot be spoken of highly enough.
