    Miss Evers' Boys

    Read the Offoffoff review

    Written by David Feldshuh, this is a warm, humane, surprisingly humorous and moving play. Suggested by the book, Bad Blood: The Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment, by James H. Jones, and by a number of primary sources, it is a fictional account of a true governmental study carried out from 1932-1972 of what untreated syphilis will do to the African-American male. It makes a powerful moral statement for our time and has been hailed throughout the country as one of our great American plays. Directing will be Kent Gash who returns to The Melting Pot having done their much acclaimed revival of Home, and is currently the Associate Artistic Director of the Alliance Theater Company in Atlanta. Last season he directed Debbie Allen in Harriet Returns at The Kennedy Center.
