About this show

Herb Donaldson's The Brighter Burn follows Calvin Lincoln, a young man from small town America who is shipped off to fight in the current war. In his wake, he leaves behind a baffling array of family and friends who fear for his safety -- and their own -- as the individual war of the American spirit approaches. DUTF alumnus Donaldson has written numerous plays including A Matter of Seconds and produced along with filmmaker ka'ramuu kush, Nobody Knows Our Name, a symposium focused on the evolution of American black artistry at the turn of the millennium. Part of the Downtown Urban Theater Festival.
