Entering the Griot’s Circle: Narrative Explorations of the Old and New

What happens when an up-an-coming theatre company (Modern-Day Griot Theatre Company) decides to request submissions of new plays to serve as companion pieces to “The African Company Presents Richard III”?

The result: a performance of Carlyle Brown’s historic piece paired with the world premiere of works produced by an up-and-coming playwrights.  Our new interdisciplinary project, “Entering the Griot’s Circle: Narrative Explorations of the Old and New” celebrates the established playwright’s passing the baton to emergent playwrights.


Lives are intertwined and fates are sealed as secrets and lies are exposed in an N’Orleans Octoroon bawdy house set in the early 1900s.

Storyville Manor is written by our Founder/Artistic Director, Pharah Jean-Philippe.
