World Premiere Production

Tambo and Bones are two characters in a minstrel show. Tambo and Bones realize that they are characters in a minstrel show—very distressing. But—handled right, a minstrel show can get you a lot of money, and a lot of money can get you a lot of power. But if money and power won’t end the distress or the minstrel show, there may be only one solution: find the source of the problem and destroy it. Imaginative and provocative, Tambo & Bones is a daring theatrical exploration of the intersection of racism and capitalism.

A co-production with Playwrights Horizons.

A Note from the Playwright

“I began writing this play while watching the founding fires of this country continue to burn. I began writing this play to confront the fact that now, through the theatre and writing, those fires have somehow become a gateway to artistic success. Now in this moment, when everywhere we turn there is another fire and another reckoning. In this moment when Black people are tearing down racism in the white community and reckoning with capitalism in our own. When our pain is demonized in the media and rewarded onstage. This play was the most fun way to explore something that terrified me, and I am thrilled that it will be a part of theatre's return to both L.A. and New York. Center Theatre Group and its staff have been so incredibly supportive since this play had its first public reading and throughout this pandemic. It brings me tremendous joy to know that, when theatre returns, Taylor and I will be bringing this wild ass play to life.” —Playwright Dave Harris
