Set in the deep south at the end of World War I during the flu epidemic, Alice Childress’s seldom-produced masterpiece is one of American drama’s most mercilessly revealing tales of interracial love. A jewel of theatrical concision and detail, the play traces a devoted couple’s caustic confrontations with anti-miscegenation laws, vicious family racism, community disapproval and finally deadly disease and their own long-buried feelings. Wedding Band, written in the heat of the Civil Rights era, speaks with stunning clarity to the public debates of the Black Lives Matter era. Awoye Timpo directs the play’s first New York production since its New York premiere in 1972.
