WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Written by David Feldshuh, Miss Evers' Boys is a warm, humane, surprisingly humorous and moving play. Suggested by the book, Bad Blood: The Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment, by James H. Jones, and by a number of primary sources, it is a fictional account of a true governmental study carried out from 1932-1972 of what untreated syphilis will do to the African-American male. It makes a powerful moral statement for our time and has been hailed throughout the country as one of our great American plays. Kent Gash directs.
