Accept "Except" LGBT NY

October 23 - November 23, 2014

By Karimah    Directed George Faison
A production of Woodie King Jr.'s New Federal Theatre in association with the Castillo Theatre.

ACCEPT "EXCEPT" LGBT NY is about the struggle for justice in America from slavery to modern day Gay Rights. It tells the story of two twenty-year olds brought together after being chased by angry mobs; a male from the plantation era (18th Century) and a female from the penitentiary era (21st Century).  In December of 1865, the 13th Amendment transferred ownership of slaves and involuntary servants from private owners to government entities - from plantations to penitentiaries.  Accept “Except” explores this one exception of the 13th Amendment.
