Dutchman by Amiri Baraka/Leroi Jones


Dutchman by Amiri Baraka/Leroi Jones

The prolific Amiri Baraka once said, “There is no depth to education without art.” America experienced a racial awakening in 2020 as the Black Lives Matter movement forced the country to examine its complex relationship with race. Although “Dutchman” premiered almost 60 years ago during the height of the Civil Rights movement, this Obie Award winning masterpiece is a timeless play about race and identity in America focused on the political and psychological struggle between African Americans and White Americans… a story that is more timely now than ever before. Set in New York City, this provocative story challenges us to think about the part we all play in America’s problems with race. The New York Times said, “‘Dutchman’ endures because it resists simple allegory,” and The New Yorker said, “[Dutchman] remains as seditious today as it [ever] was.” American Stage is proud to present a contemporary, fresh interpretation of this soul-stirring American classic.
