An indomitable African-American actor auditioning for the role of Othello must respond to the dictates of a younger, white director who presumes to better understand Shakespeare’s iconic black character.
What could possibly go wrong?
In this 90-minute, multi-award winning play, this fraught audition turns into an exploration of Shakespeare, race, and America (not necessarily in that order). Fueled by humor and passion, American Moor paints an essential portrait of an American theater unaware of its failures, and of the culture that supports it.

When it comes to being a new parent, you’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t. Brilliantly funny and painfully true, Cry It Out confronts the pressure to have it all when having it all is a giant lie.
