Sweet Lorraine

  • Teatro LATEA 107 Suffolk Street New York, NY, 10002 United States (map)

Come celebrate the friendship and work of artists and activists Lorraine Hansberry and James Baldwin. Our very own Equity in the Arts & Culture Committee will Present “Sweet Lorraine” this August during the Inaugural Rave Theater Festival at Rebel Theatre. 🙌🏽 It’s a play written by our 3rd Vice President Rajendra Ramoon Maharaj with Adam Mace. Valisia Lekae is Sweet Lorraine and Christopher Augustin is James Baldwin.

Sweet Lorraine is a dramatic interpretation of the final conversation had between best friends, Lorraine Hansberry and James Baldwin in Lorraine’s New York City Hospital Room in January 1965. The play is set one week prior to Lorraine’s passing from pancreatic cancer and explores the complex, dynamic and often heated relationship between these two prolific, creative giants and American Artists and Activists.
