Vision and Voices, a Black Playwrights Reading Series Presents:

The Death of the Last Black Man in the Whole Entire World AKA the Negro Book of the Dead by Suzan Lori-Parks, directed by Manna-Symone Middlebrooks.

A woman tries to feed her husband a fried drumstick. Dragons roam a flat earth. The last Black man in the whole entire world dies again. And again. Careening through memory and language, Parks explores and explodes archetypes of Black America with piercing insight and raucous comedy. A riotous theatrical event, The Death of the Last Black Man in the Whole Entire World hums with the heartbeat of improvisational jazz.

$10

Free to current Northwestern University students with registration
