About the Show
The Billie Holiday Theatre presents the New York premiere of Richard Wesley's political drama about an African-American mayor whose bid for governor threatened by another black candidate.
A veteran big-city mayor is in line to become the first black governor of his state. But his historic ascendance is threatened when his party opts to support a dynamic young black politician—who just happens to be the mayor’s protégé. This timely drama explores the conflicts that arise when aspirations collide across a generational divide marked by sharply different political agendas.
