Token Theatre Friends: Donja R. Love and the Urgency of ‘one in two’

Jose speaks to playwright Donja R. Love and actor Leland Fowler of one in two, a new play about HIV among the Black community.

Twice a month on the Token Theatre Friends video series and podcasts, theatre critic Jose Solís and guests bring a POC perspective to the performing arts.

This week Jose sits down with playwright Donja R. Love and actor Leland Fowler of one in two, a new play produced by the New Group and running at the Pershing Square Signature Center through Jan. 12. Love talks about why he needed to tell this personal story onstage, while Fowler reflects on how doing works by Black playwrights differs from doing Shakespeare revivals.

The audio of the interview is also available on the podcast:
