The Red and the Black

The Red and the Black

By Keelay Gipson

Directed by Zhailon Levingston

A Studio Retreat Reading

You know that thing new couples do? Where they invite their other coupled friends to a weekend away to show off their new relationship? This play takes place in the Berkshires during one such weekend. And what was supposed to be a ritualistic coming together of friends, spirals into something much different by the weekend’s end. A meditation on the rise of New Black Conservatism, The Red and the Black toys with the notion that all skinfolk
ain’t kinfolk.

The Red and the Black was previously developed through The Lark's Roundtable and New York Stage & Film Vassar Retreat programs.
