Tambo & Bones
Actual performance dates in 2021 have yet to be announced. Stay tuned!
Presented with Center Theatre Group
Tambo and Bones are two characters trapped in a minstrel show. It's mad hard to feel like a real person when you're trapped in a minstrel show. Their escape plan: get out, get bank, get even. A rags-to-riches hip-hop triptych, Tambo & Bones roasts America’s racist past, wrestles America’s racist present, and explodes America’s post-racial future — where what’s at stake, for those deemed less-than-human, is the fate of humanity itself.
“Dave Harris' challenging and formally unique pieces mark the beginning of what will undoubtedly be a long life in the American theatre."—Santa Barbara Independent
