Negatives by Steve A. Rowell

ISBN #1-933159-41-3
JAC #2005-0037

The Cast

  • A Caucasian man in black face, dressed in light colored clothes with black gloves

  • An African-American Man in white face, dressed in dark clothing with white gloves.


This performance is designed to be an experimental piece exploring the topic of race relations. The play calls for one Caucasian and one African-American.  The roles of BLACK/WHITE and WHITE/BLACK are rationally androgynous. Casting is the choice of the director.

The Set

The set is barren-without distraction. Benches, streetlights, and other items can be added to aid in blocking as determined by the director.
