Do You Like Philip Roth?
A one-act play about African-American college students at a Midwestern university during the civil-rights movement of the 1960s. Walter and Etta meet at Walter’s apartment. Walter, intellectual, hip, newly returned from the summer voting rights campaign in Mississippi, is struggling to readjust to life on campus. Etta, an independent free spirit, tries to gain Walter’s trust.
