The BSEI Drama Ensemble brings African American dramatist George C. Wolfe's acclaimed work, The Colored Museum, to life at Atlanta's South Fulton Arts Center.
The Colored Museum takes you on a journey as you experience a series of eleven vignettes that satirize elements of African American culture, life and parodies. Each scene is titled and self-contained, a separate "exhibit" in a museum that illuminates what it means to be Black in the US during the 1980's. A few of the scenes feature two or more actors speaking to one another, but in many of them, they speak directly to the audience.
No stone is left unturned as the unthinkable is said with uncompromising wit, taking no prisoners. The issue raised by his Hansberry parody percolates in every sketch: How do American Black men and women at once honor and escape the legacy of suffering that is the baggage of their past?
Appropriate for all age groups, spread the word and please join us in supporting the FIRST production of the BSEI Drama Ensemble. Our middle and high school students have been preparing all semester for this performance.
Calling the city of Atlanta to pack the house and support these talented and amazing youth!
