Listening Raven Productions' LAST OF THE CAUCASIANS Begins This Week at The Barrow Group Theatre
Listening Raven Productions is presenting a new play about modern Native Americans in NYC called "Last of the Caucasians" this week. The show will run at The Barrow Group Theatre on June 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th, and 13th at 7pm. The play, written by Erich L. Ruehs, is a fast-paced comedic satire featuring four independent, free-thinking Native American lead characters.
The play takes place in Lower Manhattan, in a pub called "Rezzeti's", where two bungling thieves decide to hole up to wait out the cops. The exchanges between the thieves and their captors are open, quick-witted, and honest as they confront Native and non-Native issues.
Erich Ruehs worked closely with a Native American group called The Council of Four in Kentucky while writing the play. He explains his use of various Native cultures in the play: "Since this play encompasses the concept of 'oneness' and the universality of all people, we include words and brief phrases from 15 languages, not including English. Six of these languages are Native American: Iroquois, Shawnee, Mohican, Muskogee, Navajo and Mohawk." The characters and the cast are all fiercely diverse and bring their own individuality to the show.
