About the Event
The Obsidian Theatre Festival comes back for our 3rd annual season with the play "and god made man" by writer kay kemp.
"and god made man" is an exploration of Black masculinity, and the harmful interaction which rigid gender performativity has not only on the men who subscribe to it, but those whose bodies are caught in the crossfire. In the play, 2 men (Caesar and Antony) find themselves married to the same woman; as a solution, they decide to take turns “being the husband,” exploring what it means to be a man along the way, elucidating their relationships with their “wife,” the world, and each other.
