Jul 10: Court Theatre Spotlight Reading Series - Buffalo Hair
Court Theatre Spotlight Reading Series - A citywide, yearlong event to rediscover classic plays by writers of color
Court’s Spotlight Reading series hopes to redefine—and ultimately expand—the canon of classic Theatre by presenting readings of rarely produced plays by authors of color. The series aims to introduce more Chicagoans to the authors and their work, and to expand Court’s artistic values into more communities in the city, with a focus on the south side.

In 1874, the Buffalo Soldiers capture a young warrior called Buffalo Hair, a black man who has chosen to live among the Cheyenne ever since they saved his life. However, the tribal warriors are coming to rescue Buffalo Hair. Now the soldiers must choose whether to stay loyal to the army and fight, or release Buffalo Hair in order to have a chance at saving themselves.
