Magic Theatre Virgin Play Reading Series
By Christina Anderson
In 1896, two Black American business partners, father and son, board a ship headed for Africa. The father has accepted a lucrative proposition. In tow is the son’s most recent companion – a young, Black southern woman who is eager to cut her American ties. As they travel, an unexpected detour resurrects family secrets and reveals true intentions. Pen/man/ship is a modern exploration of cultural responsibility set in the Gilded Age.
