The Green Book

Posted in Drama, Family Friendly, Student Friendly | 0 comments

March 1 – April 1, 2018

Pegasus Theater at Chicago Dramatists, 773 N. Aberdeen, Chicago

 

THE GREEN BOOK, written by the award-winning co-author of “Ruth and the Green Book,” is an homage to the historical travel book and centers on the Davis’, an African-American family who open their home to black travelers in the south during Jim Crow/segregation and activism. The play is also an investigation of the impact of civil rights on contemporary American issues. Inspired by Victor Hugo Green’s historical “The Negro Motorist Green Book,” the setting takes place during a weekend when the Davis’ are celebrating the arrival of Dr. W.E.B. DuBois for a lecture. The appearance of a white visitor, who turns out to be a Jewish Holocaust survivor, sets off a chain of events that shows that racism and anti-Semitism cannot be ignored.
