This new collection brings together plays and monologues from the National Black Theatre Festival, one of the most historic and culturally significant events--not only in the history of Black theater but in American theater. Held every two years in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, this gathering of Black theater companies and artists from around the country and across the globe features an extraordinary array of performances, workshops, films, spoken-word poetry, and more. Established in 1989 by Larry Leon Hamlin and the North Carolina Black Repertory Company, this volume includes three full-length plays produced at the Festival:

Maid's Door by
Cheryl L. Davis

Berta, Berta by
Angelica Chéri

Looking for Leroy by Larry Muhammad

This collection also includes seventeen monologues and scenes selected from each year of the Festival, featuring the artists and playwrights: Jackie Alexander, Ifa Bayeza, Pearl Cleage, Kamilah Forbes, Endesha Ida Mae Holland, Javon Johnson, Rhodessa Jones, and others.
