Article "Historic play opens tonight"

Description

This is an article that announces the opening night of “Home”, the award-winning play by Samm-Art Williams, which had "the first all-black cast in the history of the University." The play was presented by the University Players and the University of Richmond’s (UR) Department of Theatre & Dance. It explores the life of the orphaned, Cephus Miles, boy who came to inherit his family's South Carolina farm, and his struggles with deaths in the family, love, his refusal to participate in the Vietnam war, and later, drugs and alcoholism when he moves to the city. Starring in this show are UR's artist-in-residence d.I. Hopkins, Shanea N. Taylor, a student at the Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) and UR's own Stephanie Chandler with direction under Chuck Mike, associate professor of theatre at UR. Cast members share positive remarks about their involvement in this "historic" play.
