    The African Company Presents Richard III by Carlyle Brown

    Directed by Ansley Valentine ‘90

    April 17-20, 2019

    The African Company Presents Richard III concerns a true incident in 1821 in New York City. A troupe of free African-American actors mounted a Shakespeare production that attained minor critical and financial success until a larger white company, the Park Theatre, connived to shut it down to prevent competition.

    The African Company Presents Richard III premiered at Penumbra Theatre Company of St. Paul, MN in 1987.
