Crazy Horse Have Jenny Now

“Crazy Horse” has the sweep of a James Baldwin novel: it has at least three story lines and a landscape that reaches from Italy to Connecticut. The core of the work is an interracial marriage in the 50’s between a black journalist and a white woman, a relationship that is based on the author’s life. Secondarily, the play is about the husband’s New England relatives, who are afraid to face their neighbors. Through their own direction, they become invisible. – from the introduction to Mel Gussow’s Nov 12, 1979 NY Times Review

Presented as part of the 1979-80 Season

Play opened November 12, 1979 at the Harry De Jur Playhouse
