    Reader comments on American Ma(u)l

    Subject: missed some things
    Date: Jul 20, 2006
    Sender: JonathanPrevious Wesson and Smith are both White twins, Wesson is played by a black actor because he is dirty, that is what Juliet says and that is why he scrubs himself, to remove the "blackness". Either the production did not make this clear enough, or you missed it, but I have the script and it is very clear there.

    I love Robert O'Hara all his plays push boundries and riff on race and read like a rollercoaster. If you like this play you will love Insurrection, Holding history, available from TCG books
