A Visit to Campus By Award-Winning Actor and Playwright Tarell Alvin McCraney

McCraney

The Department of Theatre—alongside the Departments of English, Religion, Women’s, Gender & Sexuality Studies, as well as The Lecture Committee, the Williamstown Theatre Festival, The Oakley Center for Arts, Social Sciences, & the Humanities, and the Dively Committee—welcomed to campus the renown theatre artist Tarell Alvin McCraney, who the Chicago Tribune has named, “without question, the hottest young playwright in America.”

Beginning in 2009, Tarell, as NBC News writes, “caught the attention of the theater world with his Brother/Sister plays, a trilogy which explores homosexuality, family and Yoruba culture in rural Louisiana. McCraney is a gay man who grew up in the inner city of Miami, with a brother in jail and a mother addicted to drugs, who later died of AIDS. He brings some of his experiences to life on stage through these fictional works.”

“I lived in the other America; the America that doesn’t always get depicted in the cinema. The America that we are told to pretend isn’t there.” —Tarell McCraney
