Lorraine Hansberry considered this her most important play. It was her final work. Les Blancs depicts the waning days of colonialism crossing into the 20th century as it reveals the impossible moral choices faced by individuals who must reconcile personal happiness with idealism. It is rich with music and dance and set in and around a mission compound in Africa. The time is yesterday, today, and tomorrow-- but not very long after that.
Les Blancs opens at 8:00pm on May 27th and runs Saturdays and Mondays at 8:00pm, Sundays at 3:00pm through July 3, 2017 (No performance on May 29, June 16 & 24; and Pay-What-You-Can on June 5: minimum $5 on sale from 7pm before the show, while available.
