No Place To Be Somebody Stage Play
Written by Charles Gordone
Directed by Richard Lawson
No Place to be Somebody is a 1969 play written by American playwright Charles Gordone, for which he received the 1970 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Gordone’s Pulitzer signified two “firsts”: he was the first African-American playwright to receive a Pulitzer, and “No Place to be Somebody” was the first off-Broadway play to receive the award. Written over the course of seven years, the play explores racial tensions in a Civil Rights-era story about a black bar owner who tries to outsmart a white mobster syndicate. In his final speech, Gordone described the play as being “about country folk who had migrated to the big city, seeking the urban myth of success, only to find disappointment, despair, and death.”
