Americanblackout is the creation of writer/director Robb Leigh Davis. "The piece is my reflection of the experience of growing up as a gay Black man in the United States," says Davis. "My experience has found that, more often than not, gay is recognized as white, and Black is translated as not being gay. Americanblackout is my viewpoint of a country unsure of its future, struggling through its present and, in a willfully ignorant fashion, turning a blind eye to its past." Americanblackout is presented as part of the 10th Annual New York International Fringe Festival. Schedule Saturday August 12th at 4:00 P.M. Tuesday, August 15th at 8:15 P.M. Friday, August 18th at 10:00 P.M. Sunday, August 20th at 2:15 P.M. Wednesday, August 23rd at 5:00 P.M.
