About the Play
Cornell Gates is a charming, Ivy-educated mayor of an all-black upper middle class community. However, when the recession hits Mayor Gates finds him struggling to manage spoiled debutantes, irksome interns, and a community unwilling to forfeit a night without organic food and Bikram Yoga. This hilarious new play takes a jab at black folks with money.
About the Playwright
Keith Josef Adkins plays include Sweet Home (2012 production by MPAACT Theater in Chicago), Sugar and Needles (2012 Sunshine Series at Epic Theater – NYC), The Final Days of Negro-ville (July 2011 Represent Festival at A.C.T. – Seattle), The Last Saint on Sugar Hill (2011 production MPAACT), The Dangerous, a commission from The Public Theater, Safe House, and Pitbulls, among others.
Can’t make the Rough Reading, but still want to get in some Real Live Theater?

Since then, the One Minute Play Festival has graced cities such as Chicago, Los Angeles, New Jersey and San Francisco! It’s live theater pushed to extremes, where you never know just what will happen in those 60 seconds.
