Elevator Repair Service returns to The Public with BALDWIN AND BUCKLEY AT CAMBRIDGE beginning performances on September 24.
They will re-create James Baldwin and William F. Buckley, Jr.’s blistering debate and dissection of race, racism, and human worth debating whether “the American Dream is at the expense of the American Negro,” bringing into sharp focus our country’s deepest divisions.
BALDWIN AND BUCKLEY AT CAMBRIDGE is a profoundly relevant presentation of this legendary debate. The production concludes with an imagined scene between Baldwin and his close friend Lorraine Hansberry, which was researched and written by long-time ERS company members April Matthis and Greig Sargeant.
Conceived by Greig Sargeant and directed by ERS Founder and Artistic Director John Collins. Tickets and more info: www.Publictheater.org
