‘THE DUTCHMAN’ Comes to FSU’s Butler Theater
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.
