It’s 1821 in New York, and two productions of Shakespeare’s Richard III are vying for audiences. One is presented by the African Company of New York, a downtown theatre known for its growing popularity with both Black and white audiences. Uptown, a white theatre owner is threatened by the success of his competition and will stop at nothing to shut them down. Learn what happens in this true story straight from American theatre history.
