Summary

A Masterwork play of ideas by a ground-breaking poet/playwright. In the age of McCarthy and the Beat poets, a controversial African-Americna artist, Archer Aymes, became an overnight sensationfor his first book, Mother and Son--ten years later he was found dead in a prison cell. Decades later, a conference is formed and a panel comes together to dabate the facts and importance of Aymes's life, Through Rux's vivid imagery, and meticulous research, his creackling dialogue and poctically constructed debate, we become participants at the conference, and listen very closely, achingly, as Rux scrutinzes the way we record history, skewers our reverence twoard celebrity and academic authority and dismantles our confidence in our own memory.
