Sunday Evening Theatre-‘The River Niger’

Playwright’s Spotlight Stage Reading ‘The River Niger’

Featuring the work of Joseph Walker

Introducing African American Theatre Classics to a new audience, this Tony Award winning play takes an intimate look at life in the ghetto. Johnny Williams is a house painter who moonlights as a poet, struggling to financially and emotionally support his cancer-ridden wife Mattie. But times are tough and the poverty-troubled streets are even tougher, and it takes every ounce of Johnny’s love and courage for the couple to make it through their strife, finding redemption in the River Niger. Professional Stage Reading coordinated by actor/director AKIN BABATUNDE.
