Poet-playwright Marcus Gardley will present a talk on “The Black God,” at Robsham Theater on Oct. 11 at 7 p.m. Gardley’s plays and musicals — which often center on African American history and allegory — have been performed around the country and internationally. His works include “Every Tongue Confess,” winner of the 2010 Edgerton Foundation New Play Award, “The Gospel of Lovingkindness,” winner of the 2014 Black Theater Alliance Award for best play/playwright, and “The Road Weeps, The Well Runs Dry,” a finalist for the 2014 Edward M. Kennedy Prize for Drama Inspired by American History. Gardley’s talk is part of the Matthew R. DeVoy and John H. DeVoy IV Perspectives on Theatre Series, which bring leading professionals and major creative forces in theatre and the performing arts to Boston College. More from BC News.
