This play had a great impact on me in the 70's as a 9 or 10 yr old.
23 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this play in the 1970's when I was about 9 or 10 years old. I have the book of this play at home. I preformed Adele's dialog once for an audition. This single play, along with some others, is the reason I wanted to be a actress and a playwright when I was a kid. This play, along with a series of other African American Plays and new TV shows was preformed on PBS TV sometime back in the 70's. I can't remember exactly what the names of the other plays were called, but they all encouraged me to be a writer. At the age of 10 I was writing, producing, and staging my own plays at the public library in Chicago. I am 41 yrs old and I still act and write, although not as much . Out of all the plays that I saw that season on PBS, "Ceremonies of Dark Old Men" is the only name of any of the plays that I saw and can remember all the details to.
