One Black man’s magical, time-bending journey colliding with truths of race and identity.
Black No More is inspired by George S. Schuyler’s Afrofuturist novel of the same name. In it, protagonist Max Disher is eager to try a new piece of technology that promises to fix America's race problem by turning Black people white. The machine sends Disher on a magical, illuminating, and sometimes heartbreaking journey. Multi-award winning creatives Tariq Trotter (Black Thought, The Roots), Bill T. Jones (Fela!), John Ridley (12 Years a Slave), and The New Group's Founding Artistic Director Scott Elliott spearhead the bold premiere production.
