Black Book

by Austin Ashford

Freshly returned from multiple national recognitions at the 2018 Kennedy Center ACTF, Austin Ashford, writer of 2017’s I(sland) (T)rap, presents his newest one-person play: a tour-de-force dramedy at the intersection of Speech and Debate. At Tolson High School, students are reeling from a recent incidence of violence—and a former Great Debater has arrived to teach a master class on public speaking.
