Dutchman

Amiri Baraka’s “Dutchman,” composed in the early 1960s near the beginning of the author’s involvement with the Black Nationalist movement, was his final major.

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 New York City on March 24, 1964, to perhaps the most excited acclaim ever accorded an off-Broadway production and shortly thereafter received the Village Voices Obie Award. The Slave, which was produced off-Broadway the following fall, continues to be the subject of heated critical controversy. These plays are literally shocking in ideas, in language, in honest anger, as they introduce a new playwright.
