A Staged Reading of Modern Minstrelsy


Professor Kermit Frazier English and Creative Writing2016 Eugene O’Neill
National Playwrights Conference Finalist

Written by Kermit Frazier

Directed by Maggie Lally

A racially charged shooting on Long Island, NY triggers not only charges and a trial, but also the apparent “re-surfacing” of Nig and Jig, African American and Irish American figures respectively, who are locked in a seemingly never-ending struggle for agency, place, and point of view in America’s history and psyche.
