Conflict of Interest

Conflict of Interest [is] about a U.S. President who tries to remove an African-American Supreme Court Justice….

Conflict had its debut at DC’s Arena Stage in the 1971-72 season. It was that production which NFT founder and artistic director Woodie King, Jr., saw and decided, almost 30 years later, to bring back. Playwright-director Jay Broad told Playbill On-Line that, when approached by King with the idea of the revival, he actually hadn’t read it in over 15 years. However, he noted, “How little the actual thinking, about how government and politics work, has changed [since the ’70s]. He added “It’s probably more extreme today, in terms of what people would do to stay in power .” –

Presented as part of the 2000-01 Season

Play opened November 2, 2000 at the Harry De Jur Playhouse
