The Ties That Bind
The Ties That Bind
By Regina Taylor.

Cast: 3m., 5w., with doubling. Can be expanded to 6m., 10w 

"Watermelon Rinds is a satire that explores contemporary African-American attitudes about family and politics. At a family get-together to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday, thoughts about the current state of King's dream are discussed, and, as the author describes it, 'the insanity of martyrdom and its relation to cannibalism and the Eucharist are revealed.' The play, 'also explores the universal theme of family ties, class tension and the denial of kin and kinship—a theme that resonates with events in Los Angeles, South Africa and Bosnia.'" (Chicago Sun-Times) Unit set.

"Inside the Belly of the Beast is about a black man who is trying to make it in corporate America, and about what he must do to get there. 'We take the journey with him,' Taylor explained. 'First we see him as a slayer of the beast. Then we see him swallowed by the beast, and learn what it's like inside the belly of that system. And finally, we watch as he recognizes that he is the beast—false to himself and turned inside out." (Chicago Sun-Times) Unit set.
