Celebrated playwright, poet and novelist Ishmael Reed stars in this workshop staging of his newest play, a satire that chronicles the misadventures of two hapless revolutionaries. Reed is the recipient of a MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship and the Langston Hughes Medal; he has been nominated for the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize. Many of Reed’s previous theatrical works have premiered at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe (including, most recently, “The Final Version”, in 2013). This staged reading of Reed’s newest play is directed by Rome Neal.
