The Dutchman | Student-directed work

 ‘THE DUTCHMAN’ Comes to FSU’s Butler Theater

This very strong and dynamic play will hit the Butler stage at Fayetteville State University on February 20th and 21st at 7:30pm. This is an entirely student-run production, including the casting, designing, and building of the set. Tickets are $5 and may be purchased on site.

This play was written by LeRoi Jones who used his gift as a writer to make a statement about African American male victimization. Clay is a black college graduate, who is content with who he is on the outside or so he thought.  He is challenged by a seductive white woman by the name Lula on the subway to bring out his true side. This play has a lot of twists and turns as it explores a 1960s analogy to the bible story of Adam and Eve. The Dutchman was produced off-Broadway at the Cherry Lane Theatre, and it won the Village Voice’s Obie Award for the Best American Play of the 1963-64 seasons.

The primary mission of the Department of Performing and Fine Arts at Fayetteville State University is to produce graduates in the performing and fine arts – music, dance, theater, visual arts – that will be leaders in and advocates of their respective fields.
