Woodie King Jr.'s New Federal Theatre will present the world premiere of Clare Coss' two-character play Dr. Du Bois and Miss Ovington from January 23-February 16, with an opening night on January 30. Gabrielle L. Kurlander will direct the production at Castillo Theatre.

Timothy Simonson will star opposite Broadway's Kathleen Chalfant (Racing Demon) in this look at a moment of crisis between two of the most esteemed founders of the NAACP: the heroic educator, human rights activist, African-American visionary leader Dr. W.E.B. Du Bois and Mary White Ovington, a white Unitarian granddaughter of abolitionists.

The New Federal Theatre has been a New York City institution for 44 years. Woodie King Jr. has produced and directed many Broadway and off-Broadway productions, including Checkmates and Don't Get God Started.
