America in Play Project
Check this out. A very interesting project. Had my first session about a month ago, and have spent the last few weeks immersed in a lot of the reading. Mostly minstrelsy texts, Royall Tyler's "The Contrast," "The Stage-Struck Yankee" and an absolutely amazing satirical comedy on white slave-owner manners by a runaway slave named William Wells Brown, circa 1850, called "The Escape, or a Leap for Freedom."
