Sep 16: Court Theatre Spotlight Reading Series - The Electronic Ni**er

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.

The Electronic Ni**er
By Ed Bullins
Directed by Cedric Mays

The Story: A.T. Carpentier, a college student in his late thirties, signs up for a creative writing course and continually interrupts the class with his pretentious anecdotes and speeches. Written in 1968, this provocative comedy deals with the danger of rhetoric of any kind.
