WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Woodie King Jr.'s New Federal Theatre, in association with Castillo Theatre, will present the off-Broadway debut of Freight: The Five Incarnations of Abel Green by Howard L. Craft, directed by Joseph Megel.

The play stars J. Alphonse Nicholson. It depicts an African-American "everyman" who exists in five dimensions of America's modern era. In each incarnation — as minstrel, cult leader, FBI informant, struggling actor, and fallen mortgage broker — he is trapped between the American Dream and the American Nightmare. We witness the trials of a simple man trying to make decisions that will allow him to survive in what the great African-American poet Claude McKay called "this cultured hell that tests my youth."
