DAY OF ABSENCE is a satire/reverse mistrel about an imaginary southern town where all the black people have suddenly disappeared. In “Day of Absence,” the white residents of this Southern town wake to find all the black people gone. As shoes go unshined and babies unfed, the municipality devolves into chaos. It isn’t long before even the segregationist mayor is begging for them to return. This reverse minstrel show is typically performed by black actors in whiteface, though all races are encoraged to audition.

The production will be streamed virtually.
