“Day of Absence” by Douglas Turner Ward to be Performed at Hole in the Wall Theater

Douglas Turner Ward’s acclaimed play, “Day of Absence,” is to be performed by New Britain’s Hole in the Wall Theater during July. The 1965 play is a satire about racism set, the Theater says, in, “an imaginary Southern town where all the black people have suddenly disappeared. The only ones left are sick and lying in hospital beds, refusing to get well. Infants are crying because they are being tended to by strange parents.”
