Waiting for Giovanni by Jewelle Gomez 

It’s 1957. Bombs are exploding in Black churches and lynchings are a fact of life for many across the U.S. From these ashes a young Black writer emerges to become a literary celebrity bringing with him both his boundless talent and personal insecurities. “Waiting for Giovanni,” a new play by Jewelle Gomez, in collaboration with Harry Waters Jr., imagines a moment in the mind of James Baldwin in which he struggles with writing a novel that he’s been told will ruin his career. Directed by Mark Finley Previews July 12 at The Flea Theater, running through Aug 4 Thursday - Saturday July 12 - 14 Tuesday - Saturday July 17 - 21 Wednesday - Saturday July 25 - August 4 All performances are at 7pm
