About Les Deux Noirs

A new addition to Mosaic's Season Four lineup, from Helen Hayes award-winning director and playwright, Psalmayene 24. Set in the legendary Parisian café Les Deux Magots in 1953, "Les Deux Noirs: Notes on Notes of A Native Son" reimagines the meeting between Native Son author Richard Wright and essayist/activist James Baldwin. It explores the tension between Baldwin’s searing critiques of Native Son and Wright’s unbridled indignation in response—a confrontation between two mighty African-American artists, with echoes of a present-day rap battle.

Presented in repertory with "Native Son" by Nambi E. Kelley, directed by Psalmayene 24.
