John Guare's A Free Man of Color
Friday, December 03, 2010
John Guare's new play A Free Man of Color is set in New Orleans on the eve of the Louisiana Purchase. In the play, a wealthy freed slave is the toast of the town, enjoying life to the fullest — until history turns against him. Guare captures this moment in an epic farce, telling Kurt, "The image to me is so ridiculous, crazy, ominous and curious that it had to be comic."
