Century of Absence (Hmmm…)

11 September 2010 11:55 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

I’m sure many of you have heard of or read Douglas Turner Ward’s 1965 one act play Day of Absence. As a refresher (and an introduction to those who don’t know the work) Day of Absence is set in a southern town where one day the white residents, to their shock and utter horror, wake to find that most of the town’s black people have vanished. The only remaining black people are in comas, and some of the folks they thought were white…well, turns out they’ve vanished too. Panic ensues as the whites realize that there’s no one to shine shoes, raise their kids, and clean their houses (among other things).  The town mayor makes a national plea for the return of the black people, and if he can’t have them back, well, maybe some other blacks will do just fine.
