Wine in the Wilderness (2006)
Wine in the Wilderness, by Alice Childress, is a significant play by the first African American woman to have her work professionally produced on the American stage. In the midst of a riot in Harlem, a college-educated painter clashes with the young working-class woman who arrives to model for him as together they reach toward intimacy, artistic truth, and a vision of community they can share.
