Harlem Duet

Black Theatre Workshop brings this Governor General award-winning play to the Segal Studio.

By Djanet Sears
Directed by Mike Payette

October 24th to November 11th in the Studio

"This is an impressive achievement, an ambitious and accomplished work […] filled with intelligence and compassion, humour and anger, outrage and understanding." - Toronto Star

Set on the corner of Martin Luther King and Malcolm X Boulevards, Harlem Duet is a prelude to Shakespeare's Othello through the eyes of Billie, Othello's first wife, who is left behind as Othello moves closer to a white identity. Winner of the Governor General's Award for Drama and the Chalmers Play Award, this powerful piece recounts the continuous struggle of the African American fight for equal justice in America.

Starring: Lucinda Davis, Dave LaPommeray, Neema Bickersteth, Liana Montoro and Jeremiah Sparks
