Season also includes Hoffman-directed 'Road'
Tracey Scott Wilson’s play “The Good Negro” will have a run at Chicago’s Goodman Theater next spring.
Play’s world preem recently scored good reviews at Off Broadway’s Public Theater. Plot centers on black civil rights activists in the 1960s.
“Good Negro,” directed by Chuck Smith, joins a 2009-10 Goodman season that already includes Rebecca Gilman’s latest, “A True History of the Johnstown Flood”; Brett C. Leonard’s new play “The Long Red Road,” helmed by Philip Seymour Hoffman; and a Broadway-aimed double bill of “Hughie” and “Krapp’s Last Tape,” starring Brian Dennehy.
