A Free Man of Color
By John Guare
Directed by Matt Pfeiffer

The Philadelphia premiere of the newest play by award-winning dramatist John Guare, set in boisterous New Orleans just prior to the Louisiana Purchase. When America acquires the Louisiana Territory in 1801, it brings American rule and racial segregation to that chaotic and colorful world, but Jacques Cornet, a flamboyant, libidinous “free man of color,” finds himself suddenly deprived of his liberty.
