Hansberry’s final work and her only play to take place in Africa, Les Blancs was first published four years after her death and first produced on New York City’s Broadway in 1970. This production of Les Blancs was filmed for the National Theatre Archive in London in 2016.
The play Les Blancs is about imperialism, racism, and colonialism and contains scenes of racially motivated violence that some people may find distressing.
The running time is 2 hours 30 minutes with subtitles and a very short intermission.
