Local productions about race are a ... [cached]

Local productions about race are a mixed bag, says Chuck Mike, a theater professor at the University of Richmond, who says the city is behind the times in having a dialogue about race: "This is a place where that conversation is not had as openly or as freely as other places."

Mike directed and co-wrote "Zhe: [noun] undefined," which explores race, sexuality and identity and had its American premiere in Richmond earlier this year. Now it's being staged by London-based theater company Collective Artistes, where Mike serves as artistic director.
The city's old-money audience is hesitant to support provocative work about race, Mike says: "They want 'Annie.' They want anything that is far away from the drudgery, from the complications - and I need to say this word - the pain.
"It's raw, it's out there, and the fact that it's playing in Richmond is all the more fascinating," says Mike, who saw the play in its original Broadway run with none other than Kerry Washington.

Afridiziak Theatre News Interview with Chuck Mike, Collective Artistes
Chuck Mike
Chuck Mike
Afridiziak Theatre News had a transatlantic call with the artistic director of Collective Artiste; Chuck Mike to find out how being Soyinka's protégé blossomed into a lifelong friendship of learning.
Chuck Mike moved from Brooklyn to Nigeria in the late 1970s and studied under professor Akinwande Oluwole Soyinka [Wole Soyinka], becoming a close 'protégé'.
It is no secret that much of Chuck Mike's passion for using theatre as a tool for social change was inspired by Soyinka's own beliefs.
