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. Join us for this exciting story about country folk who migrated to the big city seeking the urban myth of success, only to find disappointment, despair, and death.
