Playwright Steven A. Butler, Jr., author of acclaimed play Chocolate Covered Ants, returns to the Anacostia Playhouse in Washington, D.C. with a new story of love, loss and family. The Very Last Days of the First Colored Circus is set in rural Maryland in 1927, focusing on a group of black circus performers who struggle to be respected both as artists and as human beings. Featuring authentic vaudeville-inspired performances from the 1920s, this new musical pays tribute to a group of brave actors seeking the freedom to pursue their craft.
