New Stage Play aims to end racism

D.W. Leonard presents “In Black & White” – The Stage Play to end all racism 

New York, NY ( — D.W. Leonard’s latest production, “In Black & White,” will have its first run October 4-7, 2012 at the 13th Street Rep Theater in New York City. The audaciously hilarious new stage play aims to close the curtains on racism’s final act. With the goal of ending racism across America, this show will take you on a series of unadulterated straight talk, honest reactions, belly aching laughter and an altruistic search for common ground.

The play, starring Brian Baker and David Roberts, is everything you wanted to know about race relations but were afraid to ask. According to writer/director D.W. Leonard, it gives us “a chance to laugh at the things that drive us crazy and make us human.”

A timely work, “In Black and White” presents two characters, Black and White, whose comical banter rivals that of the “Odd Couple” as they attempt to bridge the racial divide. On a night filled with comedy, drama and satire they must figure out if they can make peace with a conflict ridden past in order to herald a brighter future. Not only does this production seek to entertain through shared perspective and insight, but it also strives to unite us as Americans.
