The Oresteia by Ellen McLaughlin: A Benefit Reading - In light of the political upheaval and the upcoming inauguration, Cal Shakes revisits The Oresteia by Ellen McLaughlin-a story of family, war, power, sacrifice, and our collective responsibility to disrupt the tragedies amongst us with mercy, compassion, and grace. Freely adapted from the Ancient Greek plays of Aeschylus comes this chronicle of Agamemnon, Clytemnestra, and their children-Iphigenia, Electra, and Orestes-and the tragic tale of the fall of the House of Atreus. Called "heart-stopping" by The Washington Post, The Oresteia was originally intended for Cal Shakes' 2020 season and is presented here as a benefit reading directed by Artistic Director Eric Ting and featuring an outstanding cast lead by the venerable Margo Hall. Featuring: Todd Cerveris, Shannon R. Davis, Safiya Fredricks, Margo Hall, Francesca Fernandez McKenzie, Cathleen Riddley, Stacy Ross, Sharon Shao, Liz Sklar, Victor Talmadge, Dane Troy, and Phil Wong. Reserve your free ticket. We planned to offer this reading as a paid ticketed event, but, in light of current events, it feels vital to us that we are all invited to participate in the civic discourse of our nation. At Cal Shakes, we do that through stories. Join us. click here

Some Old Black Man - In Some Old Black Man, Calvin Jones (Wendell Pierce), a hip, coolly intellectual African-American college professor moves his 82-year-old ailing but doggedly independent father, Donald Jones (Charlie Robinson), from Greenwald, Mississippi into his Harlem penthouse. The play begins with an argument over what to eat for breakfast, then turns into a generational clash over race, opportunity, and a decision that Calvin made years ago. Donald's grumpiness is peppered with disturbing outbursts, revealing bits of his past, informed by growing up Black and poor in the South. Donald is wary that he isn't seen by his gifted, accomplished son as being good enough, and Calvin resents Donald as being a self-righteous, relentlessly tough parent. Father-son strife escalates when their generational conflict is lensed through civil rights. Some Old Black Man frames racial prejudice with a bold probity rarely confronted and dramatized. The University Musical Society produced Some Old Black Man under strict safety protocols that were guided by U-M public health officials and approved by SAG-AFTRA (the union overseeing all filmed production work). The creative team quarantined together for over three weeks before moving to Detroit, where the production was filmed in November. click here
