On the eve of his appearance before the Senate Permanent-Sub-Committee on Investigations on Un-American Activities led by Senator Joseph McCarthy, American writer Langston Hughes fitfully attempts to compose a poem. As accusations whirl, censorships abound, and freedoms are called into question, this inspired-by-true-events lyrical drama examines not only the tense yet necessary relationship between art and politics, but also the emotional and deeply personal connection between the artist and his craft in the face of oppressive power. Contains some strong language. Thurs 7:30, Fri/Sat 8:00, Sun 3:00
