Freight: The Five Incarnations of Abel Green

Written by Howard L. Craft    •    Directed by Joseph Megel

October 19 - November 19,  2017

A production of the New Federal Theatre in association with the Castillo Theatre

Freight: The Five Incarnations of Abel Green tells the story of an African-American male who exists in five dimensions of the same universe at different points in American history. In each incarnation- minstrel, cult leader, FBI informant, struggling actor, out-of-work mortgage broker- Abel finds himself stuck somewhere between the American dream and the American nightmare. We witness the trials of a simple man trying to make decisions that will allow him to survive  in what the great African-American poet Claude McKay called "this cultured hell that tests my youth."
