Stage & Screen: DO THE RIGHT THING
Join playwright Oren Jacoby and others from the Huntington Theatre's production of Invisible Man for a Q&A after the film.
Spike Lee’s powerful 1989 drama chronicles a series of events that bring festering racial tensions to the surface on the hottest day of the year in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn. Featuring a stellar ensemble cast that includes Danny Aiello, Ossie Davis, Ruby Dee, Samuel L. Jackson, Rosie Perez, and John Turturro, Do the Right Thing sparked controversy while earning popular and critical praise.
Like Lee’s film, playwright Oren Jacoby’s blistering theatrical adaptation of Ralph Ellison’s landmark novel Invisible Man confronts audiences with an unblinking view of race. In the 1930s, a young, nameless black man moves through an America divided by race and class, and grapples with the paradoxes of identity. Following the film, Jacoby and members of the creative team of the Huntington’s production of Invisible Man will discuss how Ellison and Lee’s works informed the dialogue about race in America.
