Black Rep’s newest work in progress is an Afro-Diasporic bricolage

Two Can Play If you didn’t catch Black Rep’s “Two Can Play,” you missed the first performance in a season of thought-provoking, heart-wrenching, sometimes even hilarious American stories. This weekend, on Friday and Saturday at 8pm for $5 and Sunday at 3pm for the people’s pay-what-you-can matinee, Donald King and Black Rep’s affiliate artist company premiere a workshop production of “Tabanca.” Tabanca is a Trinidadian expression meaning the loss or heartache you feel when you feel like an alien in your own home. The piece, still in its infancy, is a musical, multi-sensory excavation of the psychology of Black men. It features monologues, poems, jokes, and a whole slew of questions about the American condition.
