"Centered squarely on the Negro-white conflict, both 'Dutchman' and 'The Slave' are literally shocking plays -- in ideas, in language, in honest anger. They illuminate as with a flash of lightning a deadly serious problem -- and they bring an eloquent and exceptionally powerful voice to the American theatre. 'Dutchman ' opened in NYC on March 24, 1964, to perhaps the most excited acclaim ever accorded an off-Boradway production and shortly thereafter received the 'Village Voice's' Obie Award. 'The Slave,' which was produced off-Boradway the following fall, continues to be the subject of heated critical controversy."
