DAY OF ABSENCE

written by DOUGLAS TURNER
directed by NATHAN A. LILLY

ARENA THEATRE

 

A Reimagined Classic. A one-act hilarious satire about an imaginary Southern town where all the black people have  suddenly disappeared. The only ones left are sick and lying in hospital beds, refusing to get well. The Mayor sends a national plea for the blacks, “wherever they are,” to come back. In the end the blacks begin to reappear, as mysteriously as they had vanished, and the white community, sobered by what has transpired, breathes a sigh of relief at the return of the rather uneasy status quo.
