Ensemble's 'The Gospel According to James' in Final Weekend
'The Plain Dealer' calls play 'unsettling, urgent, beautifully written'
The play, written by Charles Smith and directed by Celeste Cosentino, is about a man and women remembering a 1930 racial crime and the events that followed.
"The Gospel According to James is an unsettling, urgent, beautifully written drama that demands that we pay attention to the scourge of racism in ways Django Unchained -- with its operatic, cartoon violence -- never will," writes The Plain Dealer theatre critic Andrea Simakis.
The play runs Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. The theatre will have a Speakeasy Event/Benefit Feb. 16 that includes an appearance by the playwright. Click here for more details.
