**No performance Sunday, Sept. 30**
A troupe of black actors reenact the rape and murder of a white woman before a kangaroo court and thus begins The Blacks: A Clown Show a play that examines racism and oppression through the ritualistic reenactment of a murder where all the participants are played by black actors -- even the white characters. Written by Jean Genet at the request of a black actor, The Blacks "flows as freely as an improvisation, with fantasy, allegory and intimations of reality mingled into a weird, stirring unity...Genet's investigation of the color black begins where most plays of this burning theme leave off." --Howard Taubman, New York Times.
