Todd Freeman (Song of Jacob Zulu, The Brother/Sister Plays) as James Baldwin, and Desiree Burch (52 Man Pickup, Tarbaby) as Lorraine Hansberry. The play was originally staged at San Francisco's New Conservatory Theater Center (Ed Decker, Artistic Director).

Studio 16T
520 Eighth Avenue, (between 36th and 37th Streets)

Free and open to the public. No reservations required.
