Inacent
Black (1981)





A. Marcus Hemphill (Playwright)

23 April – 17 May, 1981

          From the NYTimes: “[...] the title character, an angel who is sent by God to an upper-middle-class black household resembling the one in the Norman Lear situation-comedy ‘The Jeffersons.’” Mama Rydell, a domineering widower, and her four grown sons live in an Old Westbury mansion, from which they run the real estate empire that the family patriarch left behind. As it happens, all the Rydells need help with both their professional and personal lives. Enter the sanctimonious Inacent, who brings the entire family salvation by offering each member separate instruction in the ways of the Lord.
