The Simple Stories

directed by Charles E. Gerber

The Simple Stories 

Originally developed right here at the WorkShop and most recently presented on our stages in 2008, The Simple Stories was adapted by Sandy Moore and Charles E. Gerber from the timeless series by Langston Hughes from the mid-1940's. The Simple Stories is a one-man presentation featuring Mr. Moore as Jesse B. Semple, nicknamed "Simple." Mr. Moore also portrays some dozen other characters, creating a time capsule of African American life in the mid 20th century. The show has been presented to acclaim at such venues as The Langston Hughes Library in Queens, The National Black Theater Festival in North Carolina, the Grand Opening of the Bronx Library Center, and the National Jazz Museum of Harlem in a special presentation to high school students.
