MATCH - Midtown Arts & Theater Center Houston
3400 Main St, Houston, Texas 77002
Written and Performed by American theatre legend Carlyle Brown.

Part spoken word, part stand up comedy, part “TED Talk,” Carlyle’s newest one-man show riffs on the roots of American racism and its consequences for all of us – exploring the appropriaton of the African American narrative and tracing its origin, from a single individual on a specific night in Louisville, Kentucky in 1828, to the racial conflicts we still endure to this day.

«Acting Black is a generous, provocative work that has the potential to be a change-making kind of performance»


Writer, performer, and Artistic Director, Carlyle Brown's career began over 30 years ago at the Penumbra Theatre Company in the Twin Cities, where his now famed play THE AFRICAN COMPANY PRESENTS RICHARD III premiered in 1987 – later produced at The Ensemble Theatre Houston in 2000. His extensive canon of plays have been produced Off-Broadway and at regional theatres around the country. He has received commissions from Arena Stage, Houston Grand Opera, Actors Theatre of Louisville, Goodman Theatre, and Alabama Shakespeare Festival, to name a few. He is the recipient of a myriad playwriting fellowships, including ones from the New York Foundation for the Arts, National Endowment for the Arts, Jerome Foundation, and Theatre Communications Group. Carlyle was most recently awarded the 2018 William Inge Distinguished Achievement in the American Theatre Award. He is the 2006 winner of the Black Theatre Network’s Winona Lee Fletcher Award for Outstanding Achievement and Artistic Excellenece, a 2008 Guggenheim Fellow, a 2010 recipient of the Otto Rene’ Castillo Award for Political Theatre, and 2010 United States Artists Fellow.
