About Are You Now or Have You Ever Been?

On the eve of his appearance before the Senate Permanent Sub Committee on Investigations on Un-American Activities led by Senator Joseph McCarthy, American writer Langston Hughes fitfully attempts to compose a poem. As accusations whirl, censorships abound, and freedoms are called into question, this inspired-by-true-events, lyrical drama examines not only the tense yet necessary relationship between art and politics, but also the emotional and deeply personal connection between the artist and his craft in the face of oppressive power.⁣

A play by Carlyle Brown⁣

Feb 14-Mar 10⁣

“Impassioned. The play itself is like poetry to watch.” —⁣
