Why did the Indy not review this superb rendering of a theater classic by some of our best actors! Having seen previously only one other Pinter play, I found this production of The Birthday Party to be a great introduction to Pinter's eccentric stagecraft and greatly appreciated the serious (and inspired) professionalism of the cast in bringing the piece alive.
This is a wonderful profile of a true North Carolina hero. I believe that in 1980 the integrated Plymouth High School was heavily African American. The operative racial balance was the reverse of what was indicated in this article. It would have been difficult for a while candidate to be elected as president of the student body at Plymouth High. It seems likely that the young William Barber would reach out to the white students at Plymouth High School, but the article does not help us on that point.
