Full Length Play


THINGS OF DRY HOURS is a beautiful, brave and devastating play, a profound imaginative delving into radical resistance and hope rising at an impossible moment, in crushingly inhospitable circumstances. No one writes about politics, history and all that's hidden underneath better than Naomi Wallace. Ferocious, tender, whimsical, tough, brutally direct, poetically elusive, her voice is utterly unique and essential. I'm grateful, as always, for her unsparing, painful, sexy stirring up of our human selves. -Tony Kushner   “Naomi Wallace’s gorgeously written and philosophically rich celebration of a black Communist agitator in the Depression-era South...Wallace weaves together these proud, lonely souls with language rich in metaphor and, at times, as hard and piercing as a handful of nails.”Time Out New York   “Naomi Wallace's fierce new play tackles the plight of black communists in America...Naomi Wallace is a dangerous woman... not only in her writing...but also in her personal stand against what she sees as injustice and the peeling away of democratic rights.”The Guardian (U K)
