A SEASON in the CONGO--December 19-22, 2013 @ LaMaMa!
Aimé Césaire's surreal "A Season in the Congo" opens at LaMaMa's First Floor Theatre in December! The historic play chronicles the meteoric rise and fall of Patrice Lumumba, the first prime minister of the newly independent Republic of Congo in 1960. This week of entertaining and awareness-raising theater underscores vital lessons of independence-era Congo still relevant today as it celebrates the 100th anniversary of the birth of Césaire, the Martinican poet and playwright called "A Towering Voice Of The 20th Century." An amazing ensemble cast features Ezra Mabengeza, Gregory Bastien, Chiquita Camille, Lee Sebastiany, Julius Hollingsworth, Ben Monk, Jed Aicher, Quatis Tarkington, Jennifer Joseph, and Trevor Brown. Directed by Rico Speight.
