In 2003 at Theatre Project I watched a provocative play that brought the issue to audiences, A Real Nigga Show. The series of short theatrical stories all wrestled with this word’s complexity, and featured an all male cast, including the late Robert F. Chew, best known for his role of Prop Joe on HBO’s The Wire.
Returning for its 2nd run at Theatre Project (August 1, 2, 3, 9 and 10, 45 W. Preston St., Baltimore, MD 21201), it includes new pieces such as “Hoodie,” an image now synonymous with Trayvon Martin’s untimely death. The cast consists of five local artists: Davon Carey, Joshua Dixon, Robert Lee Hardy, Ezekiel Jackson, and Melvin T. Russell, and is directed by Troy Burton, executive director of Eubie Blake National Jazz Institute and Cultural Center.
Check out a preview of the show:
