The Web 1976 "The Conquest of My Brother"

Description

These two pages from The Web 1976 feature photographs from the University Players’ production of the play “Conquest of My Brother” in November 1975. “Conquest of My Brother” is a documentary-style play by Edward F. Emanuel that is about the struggle between Native American Indians and white men over a period of 200 years. According to the director Ron Vigneault, “The overall effect is to poignantly illustrate the domination and conquest of the red race.” Although only 11 cast members are featured in the play, they portray “nearly 150 characters though song, dance, mime and music” according to the Collegian. The 1975-76 season of the University Players focused on plays portraying issues of racial tensions and colonialism such as “The Teahouse of the August Moon.”
