The Bow-Wow Club
The Bow-Wow Club
Received The Lorraine Hansberry Playwriting Award
By Levy "Lee" Simon.

Cast: 6m., 4w. Five members of the original, all-male Bow-Wow Club from Harlem, along with their wives and lovers, get together at the Maryland home of Kirk and Diane Bright for a Fourth of July reunion. The group, which attained the name The Bow-Wow Club when they were teenagers due to their reputation with girls, has not been together for almost 20 years. Amidst the barbecue and sweet potato pie, more than fireworks go off as they discover how far they have drifted away from each other. Through a series of surprises and revelations, the group discovers that they are no longer the people they once knew, yet they are responsible for each other's lives, in addition to the lives of their lovers and offspring. As black men from America's inner city, they reconnect with a common bond, which they all recognize and respect, as they search for what it all now means to them. One int. /one ext. set.
