Produced by DUNBAR REPERTORY COMPANY, Tell Pharaoh is a concert drama about Harlem, our nation’s foremost Black community, from the time of slavery all the way through the 21st century. Written by playwright Loften Mitchell who was part of a groundswell of writers that contributed to the Black American theatre movement in the 1960s, the play is a masterfully crafted and poetic recitation of a history that began long before the slave trade.
“Mitchell reached his artistic heights as a dramatist in TELL PHARAOH, an eloquent ‘theater-at-the-lectern’ history of black people.” —Darwin T. Turner, Contemporary Dramatists
Mark Antonio Henderson
